The quietness of breathing
In stressful times focusing on your breath truly relaxes the mind. Stress clouds the mind and meditation help make it clear

Breathing in other parts
I can breathe into and out of any part of my body. It was a great feeling.

I can envision my breath
I can "put" my breath in any sector of my body by just imagining it to be so! Interesting!

Amazing Body
The body is amazing. The way it takes care of itself without needing us to consciously think/prompt it to. We live because our body allows us to. It breathes on its own, and we don’t have to stress about that. But when you take a moment to think about your breathing, you get a moment to realize what your body does for you. Your body literally keeps you alive.

First Time
I need to focus and close my eyes the whole time. I need to make this a daily habit.

Stressed
I need to focus my mind just on my meditation practice and not let things around me arouse me and throw me off my square.

Deep Breathing
I feel less anxious and more relaxed after doing this. I’m hoping to get some good sleep now because I have an exam tomorrow that is making me nervous.

Being...breathing...only that. No questions please, no search for answers. I am allowed to be being. IT breathes in me.

Focus
Focusing on breathing is a great way to reset the mind. But breathing into your pelvis...?

Breathe
So simple yet so effective. I breathe shallow until reminded that I can move the breathe through my body. Feeling much more grounded and grateful.

Targeting Your Breath
So that when you are breathing you visualize body parts...works. It was amazing to me to be able to "send" my breath to specific places, and also quite refreshing!

Clearing my thoughts
What a great way to not think about whatever is running through your head! Thank you :)

Different breaths for different parts
Your breath can move from your stomach to the top of your head allowing you to now know there’s room to take a breath anywhere in your body.

In the car
I was riding in the car. I closed my eyes and I can feel the car move. It was a very strange feeling to open my eyes after just three min....you forget were you are.

Deepening
I like deep breathing and do it regularly, especially as I am falling asleep. 3 deep, slow breathes and I am out...zzz But with this session I was able to ‘feel into’ my body like I was the air going into my lungs. This helped me to relax. As I relaxed more, I could breath deeper which made me relax even more. When she said to breathe really deep I felt myself falling or being sucked into the vacuum my breath created. Once inside my body I was able to move around with my breath, very weird but kinda cool.

Day Three
I learned to calm myself while also focusing on my breathing in a way that provided me with tranquility.

Other body parts?
Breathing is something my body does; not much thought goes into it. But when I breathe a little deeper and exhale thru my mouth, I feel more aware and focused. The same is true of belly breathing, which I only do when I think about it. I don’t really understand how to move the breath to other body parts though. I don’t know what I’m supposed to feel.

I liked this session because focusing on changing the breath really helped me tune out everything around me and just focus on myself. It was nice.

I need to pause when breathing. Pay attention to your breath.

Just Breathe
Breathing is a 24/7 kind of thing. We may not notice this natural habit throughout the busy day. If you take a moment and make time for you, you can focus on what it means to breathe. What it means to live mindfully and wholeheartedly. To realize that each breath is replenishing no only your physical well-being, but your mental and emotional health too.

This was such a good meditation for me today since I have been dealing with headache pain and nausea. When I paid attention to my natural breath, I realized how shallow it has been today. Redirecting my breath to other areas of my body actually felt good and reminded me of how I can help my brain refocus away from pain while nourishing the rest of me just by breathing differently. Thanks for the meditation, Lauren!🙏🏻

Breath is everything
Breathing brings oxygen to the body that it needs to do just about everything else effectively. Having the flu crud for a few weeks has made me appreciate this even more. Lungs needed help from antibiotics but I can help more by focusing on breathing and how it makes me feel a lot more

Breathing
You can feel it from all parts of the body in all different ways and how calming I can be to just focus on your breathing.

Imagination is key
With a little vision and imagination, you can really feel the breath travel all around the body, doing little things to make you feel a little better. Blessed are those who understand the power of the mindful breath.

Nourish my soul
With each breath my anxiety melts away. As I imagined the breath going to different parts of my body I could feel it washing away my negative emotions.

Calming
I learned that, every now and then whenever you’re stressed about something, just take a moment to step back and away from everything and then, you’ll find a sense a calmness.

Through my body
I learned that I can feel my breath move to different parts of my body. I like this because it's a different way of focusing on the breath.

Breathing
‘Life is not about the breathes you take but rather about the moments that take your breath away.’ True. But it’s also about the breaths you take. I can focus on my breathing and know when I’m anxious and that I can calm myself down with a few deep breaths. Or when I’m breathing deeply, I can feel that my entire body is relaxed, calm, and my mind is open. I love that we, have the ability to control our breathing. A self help method to help calm the busyness of the daily routines. Take a deep breath in, and now release it. See, progress already.

The breathe is so underrated, it is connected to every part of your body.

Future thinking
Focusing on the future causes anxiety for me during times of impending transition. I need to focus on my breath to bring myself back to the present.

This morning we focused on different aspects of the breath. If we measured our day with breaths I wonder how many that would be?

Excellence
After scoring a perfect 100% on her Calculus final, thirteen year old Amélie received a small white envelope from her mathematics professor. Inside was a card with the following hand-written note... “Amélie, You had a great year in math in 2017/2018!! I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to teach you. In my career, I’ve taught a lot of wonderful kids, but there have been a handful that really stood out from the rest. How many? Call it 2<X<6. These students have been exceptionally bright, but also hard working, humble, giving, and bring a great attitude to class each and every day. Also, they’ve had a great sense of humor and willingness to help their fellow students. You are in that special group, no doubt about it! I wish you all the best. You’re going to achieve great things some day!” - Mr. B

Return
I learned that it’s always good to take time to yourself after a heated argument and just focus on your breathing rather then losing your mind and feeling like you’ve lost control of your whole body
