Try a Quickie! Inhale (count 1, 2), Exhale (count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), Pause (count 1), Repeat

That's it! I invite you to give this simple practice a try any time to insert a break in the action, and create a small space to choose a new direction. You might set a timer and experiment breathing in this way for a minute or two and see what happens.

What do you notice during and after this practice? Body sensations? Thoughts? Emotions?

Are these inner experiences as solid and unchanging as they at first may have appeared? Do any of them ebb and flow and change?

Now that you've taken a quick break, what are you noticing is most important to give your attention to next in this day?  

May you have a meaningful and satisfying week!
