Pause. Breathe. Repeat.

We talk a lot about mindfulness and breathing round here, I am sure you've noticed. It's rather nice that these things are becoming ever more widely recognised as the useful tools they are. A couple of yoga classes a week is just a few hours out of your life, but you can breathe mindfully anytime.
