Are you holding your breath waiting for some future moment to arrive?

Take a moment to relax. Count out five seconds and then take three deep stomach breaths. As you breathe, focus your awareness on how your stomach and rib cage expand as your breath flows in and then out. In and out. In and out. Just for this moment, allow your thoughts to drift towards the edges of your mind, and then let them go. Be here fully for the next ten minutes.
