When I get stressed out, I take a 1000 year breath.
It’s really simple:
- Breathe in
- Imagine in that breath a 1000 years pass.
Try it. It works.
I found it accidentally. While rocking our little baby Ty to sleep one night, I became aware of how dark our little nursery feels at night — the outside world seemed to disappear. And with no clocks or cell phones in the room, it made me wonder how much time was passing. So I started to imagine thousands of years passing by with each breathe. And then everything changed that night.
I suspect 1000 year breath changes our perspective. It changes the stakes. Our perception of risk. Who are what we are in relation to time.
Try it. It works. Tell me if it you like it.
