Perfect balance
This was just what I needed. Thank you. I will take this into my day tomorrow. In=energizing out=relaxing, releasing the tension or anxious feeling.

New understanding
While I'm still unsure of what to do with my attention when I'm not focusing on either the in or out breath, this in for energizing and out for relaxing concept is quite a revelation for me. I hope I'm able to call this back to mind when I need it, but I know the only way to really do that is practice.

Just relax
It's so difficult to shut the mind off. I started meditating every other day and then ever two days due to being "so busy" and before I knew it, I was more disconnected from my practice and unbalanced in life. I get to give myself 5 minutes each morning to just relax; to just be grateful for living; to thank my body for carrying my soul around.

Balancing with your breath
Today I learned how to balance myself using my breath. Who knew that paying more attention to the in breath was energizing and more attention to the out breath was relaxing. It really worked I tried both and by the end I felt balanced. Thank you Lyndi!

Relaxed and Alert
This meditation was interesting. I had never considered focusing on my breathing as a means of balancing my energy between energizing (breathing in) was and calming (breathing out). Typically my focus on breathing is a means of focusing on the present and calming, but this worked, too!

Relaxed and Alert
My inhalation can be quite shallow so I need to focus on breathing more deeply so that my exhale can act as a tension release. It is interesting to know that we can use breathing as a means of making us more alert. My focus has always been on calming myself or relieving pain. Thank you for the lesson, Lyndi.🙏🏻

Today I learned that while meditating it is important to be in touch with your body and how it is feeling when you are listening to your breathing. I enjoy laying down when meditating and that can lead me to feeling drowsy or drifting off, and so learning about the intake breath and how important it is to help you stay alert was really interesting to me.

Out breathe and relax
I learned that I have more difficulty in controlling outbreath which is tied to relaxation and maybe this is the reason behind being too energized and anxious.

I did not like focusing on breathing. It did not help me to relax but instead, caused me to focus on the fact that when I try to focus on breathing I start to breathe erratically. Oh well, tomorrow is a new day.

Balance
At times I feel I am on a tight rope, barely balancing, about to fall at any moment. Other times helping hands are there to support and help me up. Whatever scenario there is still that support, whether the air as you fall or the ground to cradle you. It’s how you see the support and use it to stay balanced or picking yourself up afterwards. Support comes in many forms and sometimes it is the perspective of time that makes you realise that when you thought you were alone you really weren’t.

Focus on letting go
I learned that I focus so much on the things that are the smallest in the grand scheme of things. If we are to truly let go then we need to focus on the exhale. This was a good start to my morning

It’s easy to worry about the future and dwell on the past but that only adds anxiety and stress to my body. The best way to counter that and to stay present is to focus on breathing. I think I personally will Work on focusing on the out breath especially.

Focusing on different aspects of the same breathing moment can have radically different outcomes. What I choose to draw my attention to can awake my mind or calm it. That’s pretty powerful stuff.

Relajación en alerta
Justo antes de comenzar la sesión, tenía un molestar en la cabeza. Era una especie de dolor punzante. Comencé a respirar y a aceptar la situación. Al terminar ya no tenía esa incomodidad. Cuando hablaban del mindfulness based stress reduction me resultaba interesante. Ahora puedo notar algunas cosas interesantes.

Moving forward 🌞
There’s nothing like a good breathing meditation to clear the mind and relax the body. Breathing in the energy and breathing out anything that I don’t need. After a night of struggling to fall asleep I finally did but my day was wasted. I’ll need to just let that go because dwelling won’t change anything so I’ll just focus on moving forward. Done✅

J

Relaxed/Alert
This one's a keeper for me. The meditation itself: I like being told that I can be comfortable- sitting down or laying however I feel. I like being told I can close my eyes and relax or...not. I like this speakers voice but I also like that she leaves moments of silence to let me just be. I did not feel that these were 'pauses' in her thoughts or sentences. I felt a true moment of silence. A completion of thoughts if that makes any sense. 🧘‍♀️Also, I had previously never given much thought to the idea of being able to be in a state of "relaxed-alertness". I only know "high-alert".
B
Britt
Compassion
I fall, and struggle to get up. But if I can take these moments to get some perspective, to see that I haven't fallen that far. To notice that I've risen after failure in the past, it all seems a little less daunting. And at the end of that, some self-compassion helps me to see that I'm human, and that we make mistakes so we can learn. Xo
S
Susan
Balancing Act
Breath is the key. Feeling "too" of anything - be it much or little - can be balanced by our breathing. Isn't it intriguing that focus on phases of breathing has different impacts to our feelings? Focus on the inhale energizes. Focus on the exhale relaxes. Remembering to see what we feel as we begin, can make it more satisfying after practicing midnful breathing.

Nervous, But Slowly Healing
My physical well-being has been a little out of wack since I had come down with the stomach flu about a month ago. I am very stressed between worrying about my own problems as well as schoolwork, but nothing seems to want to calm me down.

I liked this meditation, but unfortunately I had kids arguing in the background to really focus on it 😅 I didnt sleep last night. Went to bed at 1 am, woke up to my dog coughing at 7:30 am. Then kids wouldnt stop talking. So that’s fun ahah. Laid in bed until 10:23 am, then got up, made 2 boxes of Mac and cheese. Now I’m laying in bed. Might take the kids to the park later if grandma’s up for it.

life is about being able to find balance in everything we do. balance in the way we eat, friends and family or work, and even in our breathing. if you are feeling too stressed, you focus on the exhale - relaxing. but if you’re too tired, focus on the inhale - energizing.

Perfect Balance
Focusing your attention on your breath can help energize or relax your body. During this session, Lyndi guides you to focus on your exhale if you are looking to relax. This will help relieve any tension you are feeling. If you need a boost of energy, focusing on your inhalation will help give you a boost. Focusing my attention on my breathing gave me the perfect balance of feeling energized as well as relaxed. I am feeling centered. This was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you Lyndi for an excellent session! I will definitely revisit this one.

Energy Boost
Feeling a little sluggish this afternoon, I decided to revisit this session for an energy boost. It is also a wonderful session if you need to relax. With my eyes open, I focus mainly on my inhale breath which is the energizing breath. If you are looking to relax, your exhale will be your main focus.I inhale deeply and exhale normally. After doing this a few times, I feel the energy boost I needed which then I let my body just breath normally for the rest of this session.

Yin & Yang
Never had I realized the dichotomous nature of a breath. Perfectly harmonious. Like yin and yang. Energizing inhale and relaxing exhale. The number of breaths I’ve taken in my lifetime .. only to realize now that our body already has a way of keeping us balanced. We can’t have one without the other. Can’t be too much or too little. It is acknowledging the opposing entity that we are we able to recognize the other half that makes it whole. All we have to do is breathe and pay attention. What a gift from the universe.

Somewhat More Alert
Before this meditation, I felt lazy and distracted. This meditation is very simple: following the breath while using different techniques to maintain a balance between relaxation and alertness. Although I didn’t feel particularly energized following the meditation, I do feel a bit more alert.

Easier to focus
You can relax with things going on around you, just keep your focus on what you’re doing and push the other things aside

I came back to my breath every time I wandered and found myself clam and my anxiety passed away like a calm wave in the lake. Thank you

Relaxed and Alert
I liked this breathing practice to help you be relaxed but alert. You should feel alert and energized on the in breath and relaxed on the out breath.
