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. To find a trail near you, visit
  • 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. Looking for a super cool personalized journal? has a wide variety of homemade journals.  This is one of my favorite journals from Borchisko.

    Breathing is an important thing. A friend of mine always reminded me to go to my breath and just breathe especially when I was stressed out. I think that your ideas for breathing activities are good and that the journal is beautiful too!

    You are so right about us needing to take the time to breathe. That is one of the things I love about doing yoga is that the focus is on your breathing since it drives everything. Oh and I love the journal recommendations, so cute!!
