Effect on Emotions

  • When I was younger I definitely had a lot of anger issues and I think I attributed it to the frustration of being bullied and going through the frustration of wanting my mind to be working like everyone else's. And it wasn't.
  • And so I was constantly in a state of frustration and anger. And, I think what mindfulness and meditation have done for me is it's helped me to realize that everyone's not the same and that we all have our strengths in certain areas. And to be okay with that, to let go of needing to be like everyone else and to become more me.
  • You are the only you and that's your true power.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I would say breath is probably the biggest for me in the meditation routine because I feel like 10 slow inhales and exhales can change anyone's mood, just in the snap of a finger. And I think that it gives more oxygen to your body, your organs work differently, your whole system functions differently when you give it the oxygen that it needs.
  • We go through life in such a hustle-bustle that we forget that we're not even breathing at all. We're just kind of surviving there. And so breath is very, very powerful for altering moods and setting the tone for my meditation. It's very powerful.
