Staying Grounded Amidst Change

When change in your life and on the planet is afoot, it’s helpful to try to stay grounded whenever you are able to. I’ll admit, I have had a hard time of it sometimes. When life is really changing fast, it’s difficult to get my footing and remain centered. I get swept up in the current and become easily ungrounded. 

Paying attention to my breath is the most important technique I’ve found to stay grounded. I’ve heard about the importance of breathing for years. I even help kids practice their breathing every day in my work as a speech and language pathologist. Does that mean I remember to breathe? Of course not! But, some days are better than others.

It takes practice to remember to breathe, however, once I’m aware that I need to get grounded, I’m able to breathe deeply and calmly. The best part about breathing as a grounding and centering technique is that you can do it anywhere, anytime. It’s one of the most powerful tools we have to connect our minds with our bodies and help us stay grounded. If you are feeling the winds of change in your life and feel you have nothing to hold on to, get centered quickly by paying attention to your breath. 

Wishing you deep breaths and open hearts today!
