Does life ever make you feel like you're drowning? Like no matter what you do, or how hard you try, you just can't get ahead? Well i've felt this way for the past few months. Not sure what exactly triggers the feeling, but it's there, and it fucking sucks. Whenever I'm feeling totally overwhelmed, I have one technique that is a guaranteed success. Breathing. It seems really stupid to say, because duhhhhh we're always breathing. But when do you ever focus on breathing, just clear your mind and breathe. Focus only on inhaling, filling your lungs, than releasing. When I do just this, my mind settles, I think clearly and calmly and the problems that were once overwhelming become trivial.
Close your eyes, inhale deeply, feel the air fill your chest. Exhale, slowly, feel your lungs contracting, calm. Repeat.
