“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky.
Conscious breathing is my anchor.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
In this current climate our circumstances have quite literally exposed our capacity for emotional regulation.
Practising breathing can actually support you in developing behavioural traits that will have long lasting benefits and support you in all areas of your life. Patience, confidence, awareness, clarity.
Behavioural traits are important because they give us the resources to cut through emotional states.
Emotional states are temporary. All of them. Joy, excitement, anger, sadness. Some states feel easier to withstand than others.
It is worth investing time and energy into developing practices that you can keep within your own personal toolkit to cut through the emotional states that do not serve us.
In todays episode we are going to explore breathing as a practice. Mon Medved has recently completed a 30 day breathing challenge facilitated online by Wim Hof. She documented her experience in detail and shared it on her youtube channel. With other 10 thousand views in the blink of an eye, the documentation of her experience and insights has inspired many.
We are sitting down with her today to explore breathing has a practice, this episode may just be the nudge to the ribs you were looking for to take a deep dive into a similar experience for yourself.
