It's not as obvious as it sounds.
When your life is going at what seems like 95 miles per hour...you have to put gas in the car, but forgot your wallet at home, now you're late for that meeting, there's a line at the convenience mart that stretches out the door, your sister called and wants you to take her to the airport at lunchtime ("Did you remember you promised?"), and on and on...you can forget to breathe.
Or at least it might feel like it. Suddenly, you realize you need to slow down.
Parents didn't create those "time outs" for nothing.
Yoga doesn't exist for no reason.
Meditation isn't popular just because someone said it should be.
There's good reason to remember to slow down and take a few breaths.
I'm doing that today. How about you?
