Where is your mind right now? Without judging the findings, chances are you may have been thinking about something in the future or trying to resolve something from the past. 

We are hard-wired to scan for problems and threats. Research shows that we spend about 50% of our waking hours in this state of mind called the default mode network. 

There is another way though and that is with mindfulness; being present to more moments of your day without judgmentas you live them. Is this a day that you can tip the scales and be present more than 50% of the time to what is happening, as it is happening?? You may be surprised with how wonderful it feels to live more of your moments fully.

The gifts of breath

As you read this blog, I invite you to first take a pause, turn your attention towards the rhythm of your in-breath followed by your out-breath. Allow the flow of energy to be the focus of your attention. Like the gentle wave rolling into the shore, our breath provides an anchor of attention no matter what season, what circumstance, what frame of mind we find ourselves in. 

Isn’t this ability to breathe, to land, to feel engaged in this present moment one of the deepest gifts available?  We can’t find this at the mall or on any of the myriad online shopping sites. Sure, we are all enthralled with the trappings of the holiday season. The sparkly, colorful display of lights, the warmth and comfort of gathering with family, the traditions that have been passed from generation to generation. However, there is a quieter stillness that awaits our attention. I have been saved by my breath. Each day before my day begins, I take 30 minutes to meditate, to come into the quiet and ride the waves of my breath. Of any gift I may receive this season, my daily practice of focusing on my breath is by far the greatest gift of all.

May you discover or re-awaken the practice of coming home to your breath.
