Take a Beauty BreakThe Daily Exhale: Take a Beauty Break Today

I am sharing my break time with you as I breathe in the sea air of the Northumberland Straight before a clients appointment. Take the time today, even if it is only a couple minutes to take in the beauty of nature, even if it is just a picture on your computer, a memory of a beautiful place or watching this video and the beautiful sights of the straight in winter.

It is important to give you mind and body those few minutes to reconnect with the inner you, to breathe fully and release the stress and anxiety that can be building up inside.

Take the time to BREATHE! You deserve the break!!

Mindfulness while eating

How many of you reading this rush through your day, skipping meals or woofing down your food in between your 'to do list' doing?  

Today's daily exhale is about taking a few moments during your eating to be fully present to the experience of eating.  To acknowledge the food you are eating, taking a moment to be grateful and pay attention to your body eating.  Lunch time is a great time for some mindfulness while eating - turn off the distractions, take a breath in and long breath out and be grateful for what you have and what you are about to eat.  

Exhale all that stress around you before you eat and stay for a few minutes in the state of gratitude!

Take time to BREATHE today!

 

Chill out while driving 1The Daily Exhale: Chill Out While Driving

Being in the car is a great opportunity to take a few extra breaths and calm down. Pay attention to what you are listening to and if you need some chill out time put some nice calm music on and do some breathing.

if you are sayiing 'yeah right Kim, the kids are in the car and all heck is breaking lose' then you need to listen to this more than anyone. GET KIDS TO PLAY ALONG! That is right you heard me...get the kids to play with their breath too, make it fun, make it silly. 3 breaths in...4 breaths out...fast, fast, slow! instead of duck, duck goose hahaha!

The point is that you can take the time to mindfully breathe no matter where you are and the car is a great place to do that!

Keep Breathing Folks!! xox Kim
