Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has allowed me to differentiate what's real and what's imagined. What's the reality and what's fear.
  • It can help you step out of the situation, look at it logically, be mindful of what's really going on and not what my ego or my emotions are telling me to do. By doing that, it allows me to have clarity.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • It's very important for meditation. Recently this year, I started doing Wim Hof breathing. When I'm done working out, I do the cold shower and do Wim Hof breathing.
  • It kickstarts my day for sure.

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.

413 Perfect Pain Disclosed by Author Parham Parastaran

413 Perfect Pain Disclosed by Author Parham Parastaran

March 28, 2019

Parham Parastaran is an Iranian-American entrepreneur and author with a passion for discussing mental health issues in the business community. After fleeing Iran as a child during the midst of the Iranian revolution, Parham became the epitome of the American Dream. He built the multi-million-dollar business Car-X Tire & Auto, a franchise of tire and auto repair shops that quickly grew from a single store in Champaign, Illinois to 16 locations. Although he enjoyed success as an entrepreneur, he had a secret: He suffered from severe depression and addiction. A rock-bottom moment led to him signing himself up for psychoanalysis, which started a journey that opened up the darkest doors within himself and found him revisiting a childhood of trauma. Over 15 years after that first psychoanalysis session, he chronicles his powerful story in the new memoir, Perfect Pain.

  • Bruce Lee

Effect on Emotions

  • I think mindfulness keeps my emotions at a steadier rate. My psychiatrist would call it self-regulation of my self-esteem. I think it keeps my emotions on more of an even keel.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I do actually practice breathing. It's another way that I try to think of it in terms of finding the present and it humbles me. The reason it humbles me, it reminds me that I am a human in a living body and I can feel my organs. It humbles me and reduces me to something smaller. That always is a healthy exercise for me.

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness allows you to control your emotions Like, imagine that. Oh my god, I don't have to be on a roller coaster anymore. That's amazing. I control how I perceive things. I don't have to have anxiety anymore, I control that.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • That's a good one. Breathing is something that I need to be better at quite honestly. It's something that I'm consciously getting better at. I practice hot yoga and that's a great place for me to remember to breathe.
  • I also am a big proponent of what I call 'power mottos'. Some mottos that give you power in a moment, especially when you're feeling weak or powerless. I combine those with deep breaths. Fifteen or twenty seconds of doing that and you're going to feel like a new human. It is such a powerful tool.

  • My Dad

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has allowed me to be the emotional human that I am. I tended to suppress that a lot growing up. Mindfulness allows me to have this confidence and comfort knowing that my emotions are valid and that they're directing me in the right way always.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Whenever I do a breathing meditation, I'm constantly just trying to stay grounded and to stay in this place. So when I'm breathing, it's just a reminder of being really alive.
  • I talk about being an advocate for really living, so when you are breathing, you're living. That's something I'm great at. In moments when I don't feel like I'm good at anything and I'm having a breakdown, I remember that I'm great at breathing. That helps me.

Daniel Gutierrez is a consultant, author, and motivational speaker. He was once a high-powered executive who graced the covers of Latin Business, Cypen and Color Magazines, but then Daniel realized that there was more to success than a 7-figure earning potential.

During the past 10 years, Daniel has led nearly 30 quests to the heights of the Machu Picchu, the depths of the Amazon and the top of the Himalayas.

  • My mother

Effect on Emotions

  • Regarding emotions, mindfulness has been a great staple for me because it allows me, like right now, I'm bringing myself back into the present moment. It's okay to feel that, I would say okay to go there, not okay to stay.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is important for me because I think it's important when you're in relation with other humans that before you act, you breathe just, that's it.
  • Just breathe and what it does, it takes the charge out of the situation that you're in. It gets you to clear a little bit, to think better. So breathing has definitely been a way for me to manage my life and relationships in a lot better way.
