Effect on Emotions

  • I've been able to control my emotions instead of being controlled by them.
  • There were certainly those days when the tears were rolling and the anger was on a hundred and I could have made some bad decisions. But I remember specifically saying, ‘no, that's not me, those are my emotions and I don't have to own them.'

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is absolutely part of my mindfulness. At night when grief was thick, it was hard to fall asleep and I learned this technique of inhaling on one, exhaling on two, counting to ten and then starting back on one.
  • That really helped me to fall asleep. It also helps my son. Sometimes our minds are just busy and it's not always busy with grief, but that is where I learned that technique.
