Freedom to Breathe

Freedom is … breathing. Taking time throughout the day to take a deep inhale, pause and then exhale is so good for the body and soul. I get so busy at times with the ‘do, do, doing’ that I don’t realize that I’m holding my breath. At the end of the day, I wind up with tense shoulders and a headache. When I’m at my computer I have a timer that rings every 10 minutes to remind me to take a conscious breath. After winding up with a terrible headache last night, I began this morning to really sloooow down that breath and make it real conscious 🙂 G-d gives us the freedom to breathe. What a gift.
