On my way to yoga, I love driving past electric wires where groups of birds are always resting. Seeing them in the same location each week is a cheerful start to my day. They are a visual reminder to breathe and rest. During times of much focus and concentration I sometimes forget to do this.
Our cat enjoys sitting at the window observing birds and other wildlife. Our daughter says it’s relaxing to watch videos I send of the cat doing “nothing” as he peers out the window.
During middle school gym class, I remember our teacher reminding us to breathe. I can’t remember what activity we were doing, but even now I remind myself of this advice when I get caught up in something that distracts me from the simple task of breathing. Everyone must breathe in order to live. Let’s remind each other to live and breathe.
