Tip Breathe

I learned something very simple and valuable in massage therapy school. Breathe. When we feel down or anxious our thoughts tend to be out of control. Stop, sit up, close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing. You can slowly count the seconds as you breathe in and out (ie 1-10) or you can chant or hum. It's a great way to calm yourself and it's good for you! Do it as long as you feel the need.
