How to Create Space with a Pause
One of the best ways to reduce stress is to create little spots in your day to nurture yourself.
I'm a fan of simple and woven throughout the day, so today’s tip is easy to integrate into your life by using an everyday prompt like driving or waiting in line.
Instead of letting agitation escalate, test this out and notice how it helps dissolve tension in only a few seconds:
- Take a complete inhale through your nose.
- Allow a complete exhale through your mouth.
You can even get a taste of this right now. As you're reading, pause. Inhale. Exhale. Now, how do you feel? Has your stress dropped? If not, 3-5 cycles may be needed.
After you do this exercise, I’d love to know in the comments below how it was for you!
