10 Minute Mindfulness Of The Breath
We can learn a lot from our breathing and use it as a tool, just like an anchor, to bring stability to the mind and body when we deliberately choose to become aware of it. We can tune into it at any moment during everyday life.
Most of the time we are not conscious or in touch with our breathing, it’s just there, forgotten. So one of the first things that we learn in mindfulness practice is to really get in touch with the breath.
We notice how the breath can change with our mood and thoughts, short and shallow when we are frustrated, faster when we are excited, slow and full when we are contented, and almost disappearing when we are fearful. It is there with us all of the time.
Do not watch or listen to this material whilst driving or operating machinery or where it is not safe for you to close your eyes.
