Hello my friends. Have you ever noticed that as soon as a situation get's stressful, our natural pathway takes us right to our minds? We try and think, reason, or “grind” our way through the problem, but ultimately this is for null. The best way to handle a stressful situation or problem is simply to breathe. When I was drinking ayahuasca in the Amazon jungle, I learned this lesson the hard way, because the medicine took me to the darkest corners of the world unless I was focused on my breath every second.
If you think about it, the universe or god gave us the ability to go months without food, weeks without water, but we can only go a few minutes without air. This may be a sign that this is the most important nutrient we need.
The next time you are in a stressful for anxious situation just:
Breathe. Here. Now.
