Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has affected my emotions by allowing me to have certain emotions, things like fear, frustration or anger, but not letting them overwhelm my entire day or my entire physical or emotional experience.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I practice something called Four By Four breathing. That's inhaling for four seconds, holding it for four seconds and then exhaling for four seconds. We know that brings healthy oxygen to our system, it helps release tense muscles, it helps regulate high cortisol levels and it even helps regulate high blood sugar levels.
