This breath-focused meditation involves conscious breathing and equalizing the length of the inhale, exhale and space between. This practice is extremely calming for the nervous system, as well as the mind and emotions.

Helpful
Like this one to relax tight muscles or an overworked brain. I was able to stretch and roll my neck after wards and clear my mind of clutter.

Goodnight
A day of lethargy, confusion, cowardice and experiences which emphasised my own incompetence. Failing a past paper for HSC, falling asleep on the couch whilst reading my prescribed text, being different around my parents... I’m sorry Lord. I escaped all that though with meditation. I’m looking around my room right now. The lights, the cupboards, the bed, the checkered quilt. All of it. And I can’t help but smile at the joy that surrounds me, surrounds all of us. I’ve been quite lazy the past few weeks. Quite lost, wandering around our distraction-ridden world, trying to find myself, who am I, what I need to do. I created convoluted methods of trying to find joy, peace and freedom in my life. No longer. Because I’ve found the answer. Well, really, the answer has been lying in front of my eyes, permeating them, and all my senses in fact. Joy, peace and freedom can be found in everything. If we just live in the present. Thank you meditation, the most underrated exercise out there :)

Breathing helps
Seems like a no brainer to remember to breathe but often I don’t, so this was a good practice.

Breathing is important
Learning how to properly take deep breaths was something which had an immense positive effect on my anxiety. The exhale feels especially powerful as I often conceptualise all my inner stresses leaving my body as I do it. With each inhale and exhale I take I have the power to calm my body, to soothe my heart.
