When we're in a calm state of mind, we're often much more able to respond to the challenges of daily life with some perspective, drawing on our wise selves rather than relying on automatic or reactively driven by the short-term emotion of a situation, which isn't always helpful. By cultivating kindness towards ourselves, using the fundamental process of breathing, we are practicing the skill of broader awareness and calmness in daily life.
