Visual Breathing Exercise

Want to take a quick break from your daily grind? Try this out for a couple minutes. Breathe in rhythm with the graphic below. Inhale as it expands and exhale as it contracts. Loosely focus your eyes on the image without concentrating too hard. Go for as long as you feel comfortable and if your breath begins to become out of sync with the image that is okay. If the image causes your breathing to feel unnatural then become mindful of that sensation and return to your natural breathing rate. Enjoy the moment and the movement of your breath within you. Enjoy!

Just Being (or BEAMing) with the Moment

We laugh, eat, work, play, love, and so much more. But the argument can be made that ultimately it is how we spend the moments that make up our lives that matters most. When was the last time you were purely present in the moment? It could have been a fleeting instant of time when you smelled your Starbucks this morning or how you examined a selfie you took as if the image you’re looking at is of an alien. For example, genuinely kiss your love interest! Don’t think about how you’re going to tell them that you can’t stand holding hands in public while kissing them, instead just be, or BEAM, with the moment. Take it one step at a time. How much of your day is spent consciously? How much of it is numbed out by thoughts that only lead to noise and confusion in your mind? The layers of life are going on all around us at every second but it’s up to us to embrace this level of freedom.
