  1. It sounds lovely! We can all benefit by taking time for some deep breathing and relaxation.

    1. I'm heading back into my good habits of deep breathing. :-)

  2. Breathe deep, be in your happy place, enjoy the peace all sounds wonderful to me. Wishing you a happy day and weekend!

    1. I think of you as having found your happy place, Eileen. I love your cheeriness and positive attitude. :-)

  3. I love he way it turns to Pacific water, sun bubbles and colorful fish!

  4. Breathing is always a good place to start.

  5. Thank you for the reminder. I followed steps 1 through 9 and already feel better! ( I miss my Yoga classes and am not good at self-motivation when it comes to exercising on my own. ... and that should be #1 on my checklist.

    1. Sallie, I'm the same way when it comes to exercising. I use my bum knees as an excuse. Bad, bad. Deep breathing uses a lot of core muscle so that i think counts for a form of exercising.

  6. Su-sieemac - I can use this. Every day. Maybe every hour. I find myself clenching - teeth, shoulders. Subconscious, it is. Funny how it takes a conscious effort to undo it!

    1. Cool, Angie.! I'm finding taking the time to breathe deeply a few times a lot more during the day. I stood in two lines today, calmly, and took a change of plan, very calmly, too. Even the Husband noticed.
