Stop for a moment and take a slow, deep breath
Now, notice the difference in your body … Did you feel your muscles soften?
Take another deep breath
Pay attention to your thoughts … Are they any different from when you first started?
Take a final deep breath
Notice what a difference the simple experience of taking 3 deep breaths has made in your body and your mind.
Allow yourself to do this whenever you are overcome by thought, emotion, and tension
