Breathing Exercise for Energy

After starting a new job a few weeks ago I noticed my mind has been more chaotic during the day and harder to shut off at night. yell

I like my new job but it’s fast paced, chaotic and requires a lot of mental focus. It felt like I could feel the cortisol being released as I worked through my shifts.

As I adjusted to this change I started noticing signals of distress in my mind and body:

  • Achy neck and shoulders leading to tension head aches
  • feeling tired and like I was tossing and turning at night
  • feeling lazy on my days off and like I had no energy
  • an endless stream of thoughts before bed at night

I was feeling pretty miserable…

tension head ache, high stress, trouble sleeping, tossing and turning at night, waking up at night

So what did I do?


FIRST, I had to admit that this was taking a toll on my body and mind and I needed to do SOMETHING to care for myself.

Then I reflected on my mindfulness tools that have helped me through stressful times in the past and chose ONE daily practice to recommit to.

I chose morning breathing exercises 5 minutes each day. If I forgot or didn’t have time in the morning than I MADE time throughout the day or even 5 mins before bed if that’s when I finally had time.

Simple and effective.

Only 5 minutes a day and I noticed a BIG diference in my mental clarity and focus immediatly after the practice as well as a boost in energy after a few days of practice.

OK… but how?

I know…I can hardly believe February is over in just 1 week surprised

There are two opportunities to learn how to connect with your mind and body through breath before the month is over.

I feel the most grounded when I take 5 minutes to connect with myself each day, especially when those moments are spent outside during golden hour. <3
