I am a firm believer in taking deep breaths. I learned this important lesson after losing my son. This is one of those little things most people do not even think about. But there is a lot of therapy to be found in long deep breaths.

I would rather say the pause between two deep breaths, but it means the same. Long deep breaths can relax your entire body and your mind. It might surprise you if you have never tried it. I do this every day, sometimes more than once a day. On those occasions when I feel stressed, it definitely helps. So remember the pause between your breaths the next time you start overthinking or if you are stressed or whatever may be going on with you. All I can do is share what has helped me. This is one of those exercises I will continue as long as I breathe.
