"If you truly get in touch with a piece of carrot, you get in touch with the soil, the rain, the sunshine. You get in touch with Mother Earth and eating in such a way, you feel in touch with true life, your roots and that is meditation. If we chew every morsel of our food in that way, we become grateful and when you are grateful, you are happy." ~ Thich Nhat Hanh. (Zen Monk)
Did you know that anyone who is walking is breathing? Yes, we are alive! It's time to enlighten our awareness and enjoy the simple moments we encounter in our life! Each breath we take is a reaction to our surroundings; every time we face something "different". Stress happens on a daily basis. It’s counter intuitive to associate stress with being healthy, and positive. But stress can open doors to creativity, success, and even some cases, survival. It is when being over stressed overwhelms and imbalances our nervous system leading us to feel unclear, and at times an inability to function to our fullest extension!
This is why making the time to breathe consciously is so beneficial to our health!
When we make
time to focus on our breathing, the mind and body will naturally connect; allowing our heart to revive and flow into a steady beat.
Yoga, meditation, tai chi/qigong, & pranayama (breathing techniques),
encourages the focus to our present being; relocating "habitual" patterns to sparking sharpness and clarity to our mind, while also building a physical practice to tone our alignments to proper muscle memory ! An overall amazing mental, physical, and who knows... maybe discovering your own spiritual path!
