Day one.
No matter how long I get lost in my thoughts, I'll eventually regain focus and can relax again.

everything is literally all in your mind and with breathing, I can ease anxiety by letting go of those thoughts with each exhale.

Trick
My breath is a wonderful and safe way to trick my mind. Since my breath is steady It sends this message to my mind: « Hey everything is Ok! That silly thoughts had nothing to do here. Everything is calm.

Passing Thoughts
I learned that as I focus on breathing, I begin to relax. And although I may become distracted by my surroundings, I can allow those things that enter my mind to pass through like clouds in the sky.

Just Enjoying
I’m still sitting cross legged on my bed; don’t want to move. I can’t describe how peaceful and comfortable I feel after this meditation. My mind didn’t wander much and I really did enjoy “just breathing”. I think I’ll sit here a while longer. 🙏

The effects of this meditation
I find it funny that such a simple, unnoticed part of our every day lives, when focused on, can be so relaxing and even mood-improving. This is by far a favorite meditation of mine!💜

Tammy
Enjoying breathing
I became very focused on my breathing and was able to lose myself in the breath. When my mind wandered I noted and then again concentrated on the in and out breaths. Our breath is truly like a dear friend that is always there for us. I find myself taking long deep breaths when stressed and it truly is calming and centering.

Shallow Breaths
My first anxiety attack, I was in the middle of completing my calculus homework during the last two minutes of break. I remember feeling helpless with a calculator in my hand but no formula or possible derivations in my head. I fell to the floor, shallow breaths leaving my mouth as my hands turned numb and vision grainy and dark. I’ve learned since then (especially now) to value breath. You never know when you’ll lose it.

Take a breather
Taking time out of the day to stop and breath helps me connect back with who I am individually and distance myself from the stressors and inconveniences life throws at me on a daily basis. So grateful for the Aura app!😊✨

Old memories
I thought of the time I spent meditating on the beech with Courtney. Waking up at 6 am just to be on time. How I wasted it. Being focused completely on her and not getting a damn thing out of that meditation.
B
Becky
I could feel how tense my body is. I had to release the tension while breathing.
I need to do this more often because I know it will help me relax.

Deep Space
The space that you create when you focus on your breathing displaces the mambo-jumbo, as it were, of thoughts that were inhabiting that space. Today, what I realized was a new thought that came about by noticing the absence of others. Not only that, but I saw the space that I literally fill with my lungs as I breathe in as being a vulnerable space as I breathe out. The space is still there, but it isn’t filled by me for that moment. However, it is still filled with my consciousness. How’s that for some deep space?
S
Sophia
Breathe
Breathe it all in and let it all out. Morning is the best time for me to do meditation because it helps me to prepare for the day and naturally, I am more calm and kind to myself.

First experience
This was the first time I got into a truly meditative headspace, meaning that I didn't have to force myself breathe, I didn't need to gorce my attention on the breath, and I kept going after the video ended. Truly amazing.

To breath
Ahhh, to breath, what we take for granted usually. I love feeling the air go into my body and feeling the benefits immediately because I am aware Have a clear breathing mind day!

Just breathe.
Breathing. Really breathing. Filling the lungs to full capacity. And letting it go. Letting everything go. Fully and completely. While only focusing on the feel and sensation of breath. Is the single kindest thing you can choose to do to your mind every day.

Ashley
time off
focusing on breathing and actually resting your mind and thoughts for even a few minutes a day will take so much stress off, mental health is always more important

Observer effect
I'm not currently capable of breathing normally when I'm paying attention to my breath. This isn't a problem for me, but it's definitely something I notice. I actually prefer intentional breathing, possibly because I value intentionality (that's a nice way of saying I'm a bit of a control freak), but also because I like the way it feels and the way it makes me feel. Put another way, I don't often enjoy breathing, but when I focus it comes pretty naturally to me.

Breathing
A lovely, simple, yet effective meditation. I have to laugh at myself though. Every time I do a guided meditation that tells me to “relax and breathe naturally”, I find it impossible - because I cannot take my focus off my breath there’s nothing natural about my breathing. 😊

I am learning to take control of my mind and what I allow to consume me. Even though I still have my down days, I feel more powerful and I am now taking matters into my own hands when it comes to fulfilling my purpose. Breathing has definitely played a major role in this.

Life’s priority of breath..
We can go for a few to several days without food or water. How many days can we go without breathing? Hours? Minutes? And only a few of them at the most, if we want to stay on that that “hit parade” we call life. We all need to “re-appreciate” breathing and the gift of life it gives us.

Breathing is a gentle blessing
Breathing slowly can be a blessing 🙏🧚‍♀️!! Just the fact that you can breath slowly and go about your day is a gift. Some people didn’t breath again this morning , some have trouble breathing being intubated. Let’s rejoice about the things we have! Nothing is a given!

The narrator had a nice, soothing voice, but every time she talked about “enjoying breathing “, I wanted to giggle. “Beats the alternative”, and other juvenile quips kept going through my head. It may not have been relaxing, but it was inadvertently funny!

I learned that even just breathing normally can help me calm down. My hearth doesn’t have to be heavy not intense it can be simply me breathing. Just relaxing and letting my body breath while focusing and enjoying it. Letting all bad thoughts in your brain take a back seat and breathing in and out. It’s very helpful when feeling sad :)

I felt stress at work
I noticed my mind making up negative scenarios to justify/react to the physical reactions of stress. Rather then take the time to deal with what was in front of me I used emotional energy to amplify the negative and had to work even harder at making sure my mind didn’t wander to a toxic thought and simply focus and enjoy the breathing.

it honestly made me focus on breathing so much that i got stressed about dying and how when i’m wayyyyyyy older that it’s going to get harder and soon it will stop, i’m praying and i’m not going to jinx it but hopefully that’s when i’m over 100 years old and i die from natural causes and old age only, i pray about that daily. so overall didn’t enjoy this.

Im feeling depressed, lonely, forgotten, a nobody. I’m heartbroken like nothing I’ve been through before. I’m loosing a friend and I don’t know why. They won’t talk to me to say why, share their feelings to let me understand what’s going on. I’m trying to hold on to hope , but it’s hard. I’m crying all throughout the day, I miss him. My friend , my one true person I can share anything with. I need him right now. I’ve tried to run a way twice from this. I can’t lose him yet, I need time to say goodbye before he leaves for war this year at some point.

Today I woke up at Dustin’s and we chilled until he had to go to class at 6 and he took me home. When I got home mom was there and she spent a good half hour yelling at me because I can’t do anything right. Then I spent the rest of the night in my room crying cleaning and smoking. I don’t know why but I’m really depressed and Dustin wants to help but I don’t know how to tell him the things that I’m thinking about. 😭

I never understood meditation. Never felt it would work. Or even taking a moment to breathe. Im always stressed due to my job, personal issues, and just life. Laying down hearing this i felt many emotions, as i do now typing this. I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. Work and other issues are in the back of my mind. I even shed a few tears because of the relief i felt from just breathing, laying down with a soft gaze, and just like that..my stress went down major levels.

Listen and recognize emotions
Treat every emotion as a signal to listen to yourself rather than something to avoid. If we are wading in a pool of our emotion, every tinge if anger or panic would cause the water to ripple and move. Ignoring this would be easy, but if you look for and allow yourself to feel the ripple, you can take action to remedy the situation causing it. If you don’t pay attention, that ripple in the water can grow into a wave that might make you stumble. If you listen for and acknowledge these emotions, then they are less likely to overwhelm you or create a tsunami of feeling. With awareness, these feelings can wash past you, allowing you to stand tall and adaptable.

Breathing soothes your mind and gives you a natural rythm to relax. It helps to calm down and focus again

Breathing?
I know that it’s necessary but I don’t feel that I can especially enjoy the action of breathing. If anything I notice how uncomfortable it makes me feel. I don’t like the awareness that it gives me of myself? Day 1 I guess?

Overcoming Negative Interactions
A person in my life causes me a great deal of stress. Having the ability to let all that go and meditate is a difficult concept to think about. In practice, because the aim is to let go of thoughts, it is actually easier than it seems.. although it will take quite a bit of practice for me to stop myself in the moments I’m most stressed and make that choice to do something positive for myself instead.

What a difference this makes. I see that I have been looking at focusing on breathing as a chore, something to be accomplished. But enjoying it is so much better. I wonder why I never thought about that before.

Day 2
I found it more difficult to relax and focus on my breathing tonight. I took steps to ensure there would be less distractions from my family but it was my own mind that was distracting. I had a very busy and stressful day and was hoping to recenter a bit before bed but it was hard for me to keep my focus on my breath when all of the other thoughts were flowing through my head.

The joy of breath
Our bodies have their own natural rhythm. A beat they follow. Choreographed to its own music. Listening to my own breathing through headphones drowns out the external, ambient noise.. the sound pollution.. as I realize that each breath gives me life. Each second, a miracle. The soundtrack of our own mortality.

Headache
I noticed I started getting a little localized headache on the top of my head in the back on the right side. It was rather odd, but it faded it a bit. I wondered if this is something being done to me? I'm not sure. I also noticed that it seems my belly moves a lot during the meditation.
