The breath is our best friend with mindfulness practice - always there for us to anchor the mind, giving us a place to focus where we don't need to try so hard and can allow the mind to settle and be at peace.

Day 23
Amazing, I feel so much better, I still enjoy doing these after so long, they really have help me for the past few weeks. When I started I was lost and now I’m slowly finding myself again and it’s like the best feeling in the world.

Letting Go into the Breath
It is a relief from stress and anxiety to just focus on my natural inhale and exhale without making “breath work” into another project. I like the image of floating on my breath as though I was floating on the water. Thanks for this imagery.🙏🏻

It's a long road ahead. It will take some time but it will be a beneficial journey.

Letting Go
There’s a constant urge to do something, to get something done, whether it be to finish a project you’re working on, or even to complete a thought. We usually don’t realize it’s there, but it is. Really focusing on trying to not try can help to alleviate this urge, even for just a few minutes.

When focusing on our breath, it’s important to let go of the urge to always be in control.

Look around
I’m still okay to open my eyes and look around. It’s okay to let go. It’s okay to just breath and be.

Breath
I am very anxious over my new teaching job and am breathing rapidly. However, just taking a few moments to become mindful of my breath I am able to settle down a bit. Now, to just keep on practicing mindfulness, especially when I need it most.

Just being
The urge to always be doing or thinking is a hard one to let go of and just be.

I still can not let go of the thoughts that fill me with anxiety. The feeling of loneliness, the felling of missing him and us, the feeling of missing our moments together. I long to be with him and am still trying to find a way to move on.

Too much direction in this one needs less instruction
I like breathing exercises but the narrative was too busy. I couldn’t settle because it was never ending

Just breathing
I need to step away from a constant need to control and do and just breathe and focus on that and the motion of it like waves flowing against the beach.

Mind wonders
It’s hard not to let the mind wonder off when trying to focus on breathing.

Breathe. More intent.
Being mindful of my breath, my body and my mindset. Focusing on my power to control my body and mind, breathing through the struggles I have in day to day situations

Being present
I learned that I am most stressed when I am constantly thinking of what I have to get done. It is so helpful to stop and take notice of my breath. I would like to apply this to everything I do. Stop and take notice of who I am with and what I am doing in the present moment.

Today will be a good day. I will try my best not to hide and be confident about my self worth.
I can do this. I know that I'm struggling but it's okay. I will get better.

Taking this time to only focus on my breathing helped to put into perspective my priorities.

Feeling extremely relaxed and aware of my breathing. Really good meditation to relax after being at uni and preparing to settle down

Cleansing...
I felt like a huge sheet on a line drying in the sun. The Cosmic Breathe blowing thru my fiber weave and cleaning out all the unwanted ‘stuff’. Just flipping here and flapping there, no cares, no agenda, no controlling ... just hangin in the breeze... I am cosmic clean... And boy do I smell good!!

Breathing
You have the capability to turn around a negative situation through the power of breathing deeply for just a moment.

Breathing
At the start of meditation watching how one breathes is necessary. After some time one will become unconscious of it - with practice. This session stresses that point.

I really love to do this! I have been practicing since a week. I am really exciting to know where this travel is going. Please join me into the journey

You become your thoughts
Anxiousness can be met with objectivity. Projecting can create anxiety not necessarily reality. Be objective.

Physical feedback
It’s hard to focus on anything when I feel this anxious, but the exercise helped to bring my heart rate down which helped me to see the physical benefit even though my mind is still racing.

Stress & anxiety release
Breath work is so powerful. If I just remember to breath I know that I can get through anything.

Letting Go
it was soothing to focus on my breathing and feeling it going in and out of my body. It’s very relaxing.

Distracted but still learning
I learned that even when distracted these meditations still leave an impression on you. I took away from this meditation that it’s ok to just be, breathe. That you can take time out for 3 minutes and you don’t have to be doing anything, working, achieving or doing anything in that time, you can just be, Me time.

Letting Go Into the Breath
Remembering to walk away from stressful moments and JUST BREATHE. Everything can feel better after a few breathes.

Coming back
When the mind wonders into thoughts just come back to breathing and refocus on just breath

Racing thoughts
I have been having a lot of anxiety that only comes to the surface when I am trying to relax my mind. Due to my limited experience with meditation, I become aware that my thoughts are getting obsessive, overwhelming when I am thinking to myself. I felt that in the practice today as well. But when her instructions subtly carried me away from the thoughts and calmed me by suggesting that I don't have to do anything but sit with my breath.

Relaxing
The rhythm of the breath is the center of relaxing for me, and also my heartbeat. When I'm restless in bed I put my hand where my heartbeat can be found.

Breathing with my own pace and without the thoughts of reality truly calmed me.

I felt relaxed after my meditation and at ease before I felt some anxiety and anxiousness and stress but it went down significantly

I learned that sometimes you just have to pause what’s happening around you to take time and just breath

First time
I felt really relaxed and started to fall asleep. I mind went blank with all the other problems just focused on relaxing.

Giving control away and natural breathing is relaxing and enjoyable.

Natural breathing
You don’t have to do all these different breathing techniques. You just have to breathe and that’s how you do it. Pay attention to your natural breathe, and make it steady. Nothing crazy or counting. I actually quite liked it.

Ocean waves
I learned that imagining myself floating on ocean waves is a place I can find peace. Here there is no trying, thinking about what I should do.

I’m just really really exhausted and anxious for this week . It’s filled with deadlines and I’m also very stressed about getting my weight loss routine right

Well paced
This meditation had what was (for me) a lovely pace, reminding me to return to the breath in ways that felt easy and natural and unforced. Not too slow or too fast. I feel relaxed and centred in my breathing.

Stressing out only paralyzes me
When I am able to let go of the stress and do things more mindfully I am much more productive

Let Go
I feel like this mediation is helpful by letting go of my breathing and just close my eyes and just relax breathing in and out just think about my happy place.

Letting Go...
Focusing on my breathing helps me relax my mind and my body. It is not always easy since my mind likes to wonder but I have learned not to be judgmental and come back to my breathing. Making some progress 😌

Letting go
The breathing helps me relax my mind and body. I get very stressed with all the daily issues and social pressure I’m putting on myself and this helps me letting it go.

Allow yourself to breathe naturally. It is so relaxing not to be "doing" something. What a wonderful way to calm yourself throughout the day.

Morning
Some mornings are so great! A fresh new day. Some not so much 😂 Like today! Nobody wanted to get ready and get on with what we needed to do. After 3 minutes of meditation and letting go, u ready for my day!

Today
I am able to find a new normal. This has been incredibly challenging. Working through some personal, but work related issues, has been trying. Finally I can learn to mute a text, and read texts as I choose. Not just some Pavlovian auto response.

Lisa
Understanding the new normal.
Life has been interrupted for everyone. It has been paused, despite our present circumstances. Learning to adjust can be challenging. Also learning to not have a Ground Hog Day feeling.

Letting go into the breath
I'm glad i do these meditations in the morning now. If you want to know how i do them, it's simple. All you need, is a window and Aura. And a yoga mat. But you don't have to. Sit down in front of the open window and listen to the sound of nature. With a little help from Aura❤️

I suck at meditation lol. I'll get better with practice but it's nearly impossible to clear my mind.
