When life gets hectic and we are feeling the pressure to perform, to execute, to produce, we forget to breathe. Not literally—our brain continues to signal our lungs to expand and contract. But we forget to breathe deep. Our movements become shallow and erratic.
It sounds counter intuitive, but when we are feeling like we need to speed up and move faster to accomplish everything we believe needs doing, that is exactly when we need to slow down the most. We need to stop and step away—if only for a brief moment.
To remember to breathe.
