Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

The breath is your gateway to a centered, grounded moment. Stop. Breathe. Focus on the sensation of breathing. Follow it all the way down into your center. This accesses your personal power and your connection to the energy of the universe, your chi. Breathe again. Feel the lungs and chest expand like a bellows. This automatically engages the parasympathetic nervous system through the vagus nerve and your body begins to relax.  This allows you to become present to the moment and deactivates the flight or fight response. Breathe a third time, deliberately, consciously, luxuriously. Now you are fully present, fully engaged with the Whole of Creation, and centered within your own self.  In this state, you can handle anything.
