Daily Heart Practice on the Road

Our lives are often so busy that we run through our days without a care about what is going on inside our bodies… until there is a need to feed it or take care of it in some way. What would our lives be like if we took just a moment each day to do something that benefited one of our most important organs, our heart.

I’m talking quick and easy here.

Most of us travel every day either for work, recreation or to fulfill home tasks. When we are in a hurry, the most stressful parts of traveling  is the wait time. We can use that time to our benefit.

Next time you are sitting at a traffic lights waiting for the light to turn or moving slowly through rush hour traffic or on a long ride in public transportation, notice the anxiety in your body. Really pay attention to it. Then breathe.

Purposely take three long deep breathes in and out. As you do this, relax your body and send love to your heart. Then smile.

That’s it. Simply, quick and easy to do even in traffic. Your body will appreciate the mini break from stress and your heart will thank you.
