Monday Musings: On Mindfully Breathing...

We often hear the advice, relax, take a deep breath!  Exhale slowly and deeply.  This automatic function that our brain monitors is an important part of our spiritual and mental health.  Breathing in you take in oxygen, breathing out you exhale carbon dioxide.  Here are some profound thoughts on breathing:

 

Your breathing should flow gracefully,
like a river, like a watersnake crossing
the water, and not like a chain of rugged mountains or the gallop of a horse.

To master our breath is to be in control of our bodies and minds. Each time we find ourselves dispersed and find it difficult to gain control of ourselves by different means, the method of watching the breath should always be used.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

 

"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."

Marcus Aurelius

 

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." 

Hillary Cooper

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in less than 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

Happy Monday, Ron and Alexandra- yoga helped me with my breathing and you are so right. When I am in a stressful situation (like at the dentist) I practice my breathing. It truly helps.  Wonderful post to remind us to focus on our breathing.

Good quotes, all. When I do my yoga and meditation in the mornings, I'm always grateful for how smooth and effortless my breath becomes; it grounds me for the day.

Loved this part of your first quote

the water, and not like a chain of rugged mountains or the gallop of a horse."

There have been times when my breathing sounds like a chain of rugged mountains. Great post, loved all the quotes. Have a great week breathing mindfully.

Very nice selection of quotes and the blush succulents are lovely.  I appreciate this one too - also from Hanh.
