Mindful breathing brings your body and mind back together. In our busy society it’s a great fortune to be able to sit and breathe consciously from time to time. Paying attention to your breathing is a way for your body to relax. As you continue breathing with awareness, your breath naturally becomes slower and deeper. As you breathe, you can say to yourself:

Breathing in, I’m aware of the tension in my body.

Breathing out, I release all the tension in my body”.

Thich Nhat Hahn, Making Space
