I am one of those people who need a friendly reminder on a regular basis to breath. Often I find myself wrapped up in work, home, time with my husband, in the car rushing to work or working out to the latest turbo round. As I continue to grow older and wiser (at least I believe I’m growing wiser), I appreciate the moments when I have the time to breathe and relax.
A few of my favorite ways I love to break away from life and take a deep breath in to breathe:
- Fresh Air. Even if it is only for a few moments, fresh air allows me to calm down and relax.
- Walk or Hike. This is one of my favorite things to do, because it is easy and doesn’t require you to be in a specific place or equiptment to use. All you need is a direction to head. According to the Health Status Calculator, an average 135-pound woman will burn approximately 365 calories during a one hour hike. The hills are alive with the sound of calories burning.

- Journaling. I’ll admit I rearly have time to put pen to paper, but when I have a moment to journal a few thoughts on my mind, I feel like I’m headed in a new positive direction.
