Mindful breathing

“As we’ve already seen, the easiest way to free ourselves from the endless wheel of nonstop thinking is by learning the practice of mindful breathing. We breathe all the time, but we rarely pay attention to our breathing. We rarely enjoy our breathing. A mindful breath is the treat you get to enjoy when you’re giving all your attention to your in-breath and out-breath for the full length of that inhalation and exhalation. If you pay attention as you breathe, it’s as though all the cells in your brain and in the rest of your body are singing the same song.”
