Take five minutes to breathe today

Take five minutes to breathe today

This cartoon made me laugh out loud and really spoke the truth to me at the same time.

We all spend a large chunk of our time taking care of other people and we forget to be kind to ourselves.  Our population generally feels guilty for doing nothing.

This week I suggest you set your iPhone timer or alarm if necessary and commit to five minutes of silence and breath.  I am the first to admit how hard that is, but also how beneficial meditating can be.

Let me know if you try it and how it goes.
