We can get so caught up in everyday life that we forget why we are doing whatever we are doing in the first place…until an illness, an accident, or an overall feeling of malaise and dissatisfaction starts to take over.

When we allow ourselves to pause in our day, not necessarily to analyze why something happened, but to just take a few conscious breaths in and out, the natural order of inner wisdom has space to come forth. Decisions can be made from a place of balance rather than a stress based reaction. You become in charge rather than the victim.
Try this breath as a means for pausing: Nadi Shodhana:

Hope you have a peaceful day!
