  • There has been a huge impact in regards to becoming aware of my emotions.
  • I try to look at myself from higher up, looking down into myself and to ask what's going on right now?
  • That gives us the ability to actually control the emotions and act in a fruitful way, instead of letting your emotions take over.
Thoughts on Breathing
  • Breathing is life changing and is the thing that centers me the fastest
  • I learned the breathing method to breathe all the way down your diaphragm and your stomach.
  • Then on the breath out, you do a humming sound like, ummm. You try and get as deep down in your chest as possible for as long as possible.
  • If you do four of those breaths, you'll feel a significant change in your body.
Suggested Resources Bullying Story
  • When you're on social media and you get all of these bad messengers, it can be absolutely horrible.
  • If you try to do something or create something, the more successful you become, the more nasty stuff people will write.
  • I think the best thing is really to breathe, relax, and consider what is your purpose. Then accept that people who write these negative messages are in a very bad place.
  • If you can be mindful and just breathe, I think that is extremely important.
  • The human brain is not wired for us to be happy. It's wired for us for survive. So we see the negative much more than the positive.
  • I can have nine positive comments, but it's still that one negative that my brain focuses on. And that's where mindfulness comes in. It helps me see what's actually important.
