Your breath can be used as a powerful tool to anchor you into the present moment. Focusing on your breathing can also be used to take your attention away from a stressful moment, fearful thought or anxious event. Bringing your awareness to your breath has the ability to calm the mind, center the body and alleviate your stress.
Enjoy this breath meditation first thing in the morning to start your day off right, as a relaxing break throughout the day or at night to help the body decompress and prepare for sleep.
