The inhalation is the first thing we do when we come into this World and the exhalation is our final act when we leave. How have we become so disconnected from the most important function of our body? The Breath. Take a moment to observe your breath. Is your natural rhythm short and shallow? Do you breathe deeply into your belly or do you only use the upper part of your lungs? Did you know you can take your body out of "survival mode" simply by breathing intentionally? Take some time today to Breathe.
