Tips for Living Wicca: Anchor Yourself with Your Breath

Life has a way of getting difficult sometimes. We can throw so many balls up in the air, in a moment of distraction they can all start coming down on us. It can get overwhelming-- but I bet I don't have to tell you that.

Anyone can have a panic attack, or become overwhelmed by emotion-- anger, sadness, fear. Anyone can find themselves in a time crunch, the mind running spinning in circles as you run yourself ragged. Anyone can find themselves obsessing over something, having a hard time letting go of the past or worrying about the future.

Luckily, the Gods, nature, the Universe -- where ever you think we all come from -- have given us an anchor to steady ourselves: the breath.

My Tip for You Today: When you're feeling like things are getting a little out of your control, slow down and breathe. Just focus on your breath, in and out. Steady. Even. Let it flow naturally and put your attention on your breath. Let your breath remind you of what's real, of what's truly important. Life, health, survival-- to keep on breathing.

Remember all other problems are just temporary and be resolved one way or the other. Just breathe and remind yourself you're a living organism that's part of something bigger. 

What do you do when you get overwhelmed?
