Ep 22: Create Space With Your Breath
Have you ever been told to just breathe? Our breath is a tool that we carry with us, everywhere we go. But the truth is that most of us ignore our breath, or only use it to diffuse feelings or situations. In this week’s episode, I am am sharing why creating space with your breath is a daily practice that can help you cultivate awareness and awakeness in your body, mind, and life. And I’ll give you a hint: this simple practice is like liquid gold.
