What if the breath was a pathway to choose joy? There is a very old Chinese saying that says, “One who half breathes, half lives.” When you are feeling fatigue, lethargy, slight depression, or inability to focus have you ever just done a Breath Check? You may find that your breathing has some restrictions. The good news is that you can chose to change that in any moment!
Shallow, upper chest, or restricted breathing represents so many things. It is a pattern in alignment with restriction, limitation, and shutting down on life – YOUR LIFE!
Have you ever held your nose and tried to taste something? Or maybe you did that when you were young and your parents wanted you to eat something that you didn’t want to eat…so you held your nose and ate it….because you couldn’t taste it right?!
Shutting down on the breath shuts down more than just the breath. It obviously impacts your health and aliveness, but it also shuts down your joy and pleasure of living, being in the moment, your creativity, and your ability to “taste life”.
Here is a simple video that gives you a tool to shift what I call “low life breathing” into “breathing in creative joy”. Use it often!
