Learn to Pause

Pause to Be Calm
By: Debbie Ginsberg

For many people, a day is set by time. Your morning train leaves at 6:30am…so you rush through your morning routine. You have to pick up the kids from school…so you rush your day to be on time for pickup. Your big meeting is in 30 minutes…and you’re not ready. Our anxiety levels can be increased by the pressures of time.

It is too easy to get caught up in the rush and we often feel fatigued or overwhelmed by the anxiety associated with schedules. 

As Simon and Garfunkel sang, “Slow down you move to fast”… 

A good way to reduce the pressure and slowdown is by pausing.  A simple pause with one deep breath (8 slow breaths through the nose and exhale slowly through the mouth) can help calm you down. 

Practicing pausing (slow breathing) on a daily basis prepares your body to relax on command.
Enjoy the Calm!
