Journal:  How do you spend your breath? Are you aware of it? The way you manage your very inhaling and exhaling has tremendous effect on your physiological state of being.  As you are reading this, employ the practice of mindful breathing: Simply inhale deeply and exhale slowly three times.  As stress hits you today, take back your physiological response by utilizing this practice. Deep inhale, slow exhale.  Jot down in your journal tonight when you practiced mindful breathing – and the effect it had.  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
