Breathwork is an activity that you have to try to truly understand its benefits. When I first heard about breathwork, I was skeptical about how much it would truly “improve my mood,” but I was pleasantly surprised with the improvements that I noticed.
I always considered myself to be a grateful person. I said please and thank you and was genuinely appreciative when people would help me. But most times, my gratitude stopped there. I didn’t practice being grateful for simple things like running water or the food on my table.
The relationship I have with meditating today differs from what I thought it would ever be. There’s a certain level of discipline and mastery that comes with meditating—one that I struggled to obtain for many years. However, looking back now, I couldn’t imagine my days without at least a short meditation.
