Calm Down Instantly with This Breathing Exercise

It'll help you survive and thrive this holiday season.


Isn't it funny how our calendars fill up like crazy during the holidays?  It's not even Thanksgiving yet and the season is already in full swing, which for me provokes a great deal of anxiety.  Already on our calendar are attending family dinners and parties, jazz concerts, the NYC Ballet's performance of The Nutcracker, and this year Joe and I are looking to move apartments in December too.  With what feels like a suffocating calendar full of fun events, the only way I can truly enjoy the season is by focusing on the moment and calming my anxiety.  Here's a easy breathing meditation that I incorporate into my day.  Hope it helps you, too!
