Breath deep....it will make life easier. 10 deep breaths in and out, and you will experience not only a change in perception, but a change in your para sympathetic nervous system. For the better I might add. You have important parts of your nervous system, and there are: para sympathetic, and sympathetic. Sympathetic often gets out of whack...which can make you whacked. Para Sympathetic is your part of the nervous system that loves you, wants you to experience total bliss. So how do you increase that Para S? Well, take ten deep breaths...the important thing....KISS (Keep it simple sweetheart) is to take a deep breath in-count to three..... THEN take a deep breath- count to three. Put the Missississippi's in if you need to...but slow it down....you will feel better after...I promise:)
Oh, if you are feeling anxious and you take 10 deep breaths and don't count to three and/or breath fully...well...you will feel like a train wreck after...it causes you to feel more anxious breathing shallow, which is how you got yourself worked up in the first place, shallow breathing....
Let your breath be a sacred guest inside your body......The Latin word for breath is espiritus (I think that is spelled right:) With the root of the word being Spirit.
You can even soften your belly right now, and just let your belly cradle the breath. Awe...there ya go:)
