Taking time for yourself is NOT SELFISH! It is something you MUST do so you can be there to care for your loved ones!
We all experience days when it seems as if everything is going wrong. Your day starts out with your alarm not going off. You’re late already, and now there’s no hot water for your shower. You manage to tough it through, look at the time, and realize that you will only be a little late for work. But then the car won’t start!
You achieve inner calm through your breathing…The faster you inhale and exhale, the more your heart rate speeds up, and your nervous system and muscles prepare for increased physical activity, or stress.
