Sometimes we may feel overwhelmed. Life seems to be handing us more than we can deal with. At these times, it is important to bring yourself and your focus back to the present moment. Breathing can help you connect with the present moment. Inhale and feel your breath move gently across your nostrils. Exhale and feel your breath move gently across your nostrils. Straighten your back. Hold your head up. Continue to breathe, noticing your breath. In this moment, this very moment, everything is all right. Everything is okay. Everything is fine. The more we can bring ourselves back to the present moment, the less overwhelmed we will feel.
You choose your focus. You can choose to focus on everything overwhelming all at once, or you can choose to focus on the present moment. The present moment contains peace. From this place of peace, you can see more clearly what needs to get done and what your options are for completing your tasks. You do not need to DO anything in the present moment, just breathe and focus on peace.
