Catch Your Breath

Whether it’s the middle of a full workday, you’re busy with household responsibilities, or life is just a little overwhelming, sometimes you need to take a moment to be still and get centered before continuing on to the next thing. Follow these steps to Catch Your Breath.

Stand still
Take a deep breath
take another
take one more
Feel your feet supported by the earth
take a breath
take another
take one more
Look up to the sky
take a breath
take another
take one more

Repeat as needed
Peace be with you.
