This morning I was feeling a bit worked up:
Busy weekend + new job + old job + computer issues + upcomming 10K = a frazzled and stressed out Erin
Rather than letting it continue and spiral out of control I calmly walked to the bathroom, went into the biggest stall and planted my feet with my back up against the wall…
I rolled out my neck and shoulders letting my arms drop to the sides.
After a moment I brought my right hand to my sternum, my left hand to my heart and took a deep breath.
Then for every inhale I stated an intention in my head:
For the first three breaths I focused on my breathing energy into heart:
Open my heart to compassion
Open my heart to understanding
Open my heart to kindess
Then I moved onto my core:
Bring balance to my spirit
Bring stability to my spirit
Bring joy to my spirit
Letting my arms drop I focused on my whole body:
I am centered
I am grounded
I am focused
I am happy
Then I took one last deep breath, shook out my arms and shoulders and left the bathroom a calmer, happier person.
