Sometimes in life, we get completely scattered. Our thoughts, emotions and even what we are doing to begin move all over the place with no rhyme or reason. Sometimes, this creates an unsettled feeling within and an inability to focus on getting things done that we set out to do. It’s during times like these that we need to get ourselves back to neutral and get centered.
Centering yourself is nothing more than bringing all of your energies back to you within your entire being, connecting yourself once again to your energy. Think about the first thing one might do before a big presentation or interview. Taking a deep breath in, is sometimes what we do to prepare ourselves for something big that’s about to happen. This is a person’s innate ability to know exactly what they need to bring balance and centered within. The breath is what helps to bring all of your energy back within so that you can be in balance within and focus on whatever it is that needs your attention at that moment.
Deep breathing is just one way to bring yourself back to center. Our breath is our life force. Breathing is what keeps us alive and most times is not even a thought, but conscious breathing helps one to center. Another way to center is to meditate using your breath for as little as three minutes, if your short on time. All of the meditations I do first begin with three slow deep breaths. You can do this in a comfortable position anywhere and just notice your breath. Notice the breath enter your body. Then notice it leaving your body. You’ll find yourself in complete balance once you get accustomed to doing this. You’ll also find that the rest of your day flows intentionally and with ease.
