Changing Your Breathing Can Change Your Life
Sometimes we have days where one bad thing seems to follow another and we feel like the universe hates us. Right? Well, I’m here to tell you that no, the universe doesn’t hate you, and those bad days can be turned around if you change how you respond to negative circumstances. It sounds pretty simple, but how you breathe through a situation can really help alleviate negative pressure. When you have control over your breathing, and are conscious about the length and depth of it, you’re better equipped to calm the mind and redirect your thoughts. “Nothing is permanent, everything is temporary.” Click on the link above to find out how breath work can help you during your most stressful situations.
HuffPo commenter on diaphragmatic breathing:
“It’s like dropping an anchor down through a storm of thought right to your body, keeping you steady so you can stand firm through those red waves of mental chatter and emotion until the storm blows over.”

“We’ve all been given a gift, the gift of life. What we do with our lives is our gift back.”
This promotional video for Charles Eisenstein’s enlightening book is simply incredible. This short glance on the poignant ideas he touches on in his book really illustrate the ways that established patterns of money have affected us on global and national level. In this video, he offers a neo-spiritual and philosophical approach on how we can change the way we use money so that less people have to suffer now and in the future. What I really liked about this trailer-like video is that he brings up the point that if we were more conscientious of our actions and how we treat each other, we would realize that we all are here on this Earth to realize our potential and our purpose. Those of us that were born into circumstances that allowed us to accumulate wealth are just plain lucky. But at the end of the day, we’re all humans that are connected by our universal experience–the experience of living, breathing and knowing that one day we will die. So instead of isolating ourselves and pretending that our actions in the Western world don’t affect farmers in South America or miners in Africa, we should remember that we are all in this together.
Today, we now have the tools, technology, and understanding to change how we view our world and transition to a more connected and sustainable way of living. I’m so glad to see that there are innovative thought leaders that are spreading these progressive ideas on how we can better ourselves and this beautiful planet that we’re inhabiting.
The farther these ideas go, the better for us all.
Love and Light,

I love you, Chicago, I do. But I’ve been wanting to write about what it was like to live and breathe in my favorite European city for a while now. London. When you’re there, you have the freedom to be whoever you want to be. Truly. Will a frothy pint make your morning brighter? Go […]

This week has been like a roller coaster that I couldn’t get off of. That’s a good thing. If I had just jumped off and allowed myself to be succumbed by the things that were dampening my spirit, where would I be? A psych ward? On a train to Toronto? (again?) I’ve really grown up a lot […]

I’m starting to realize that I’m not invincible. It’s really a scary thought. For most of my life I’ve believed that I was to live forever. I remember thinking in Sunday school that if Jesus could be resurrected, I would be too. It was a thought that was so obvious to me because I truly […]
