Just breathe

Sometimes my emotions get on a train track I wish that they would stay off of...

I feel anxious.
Or disconnected.
Or irritated.
Or I want to wrap myself in a blanket and not step out into the day.

One of the great gifts yoga has given me is learning that just as our emotions impact our breathing, our breathing can impact our emotions. Deep, even, thoughtful breaths can bring about balance.

Sometimes, we really do just need to remember to breathe.
