Return to Your Basic Instincts – Breathe In and Out, and Put One Foot in Front of the Other

This morning I woke up in a nervous flurry of thoughts. Lists started scrolling through my brain – don’t forget to do this before you do that, but oh yeah, there’s all of this stuff too. It took about 15 minutes, but I finally gave in to the most basic instinct – I closed my eyes and focused on breathing.

Five minutes of that and I was good to go. The lists of “stuff” no longer seemed impossible. In the calm I could prioritize against most critical vs biggest bang for the buck vs will make someone else happy. I look forward to checking things off, one by one, and embracing that feeling that you get when you are focused instead of allowing oneself to be overwhelmed.
