Effect on Emotions
I think it makes it much easier to have emotions and not get sidetracked by them or hijacked by them.
It's like, oh yeah, they're emotions and they come and they go and that I don't need to be a victim of my emotions. Not pushing them down, but not needing to be a victim of them.
Especially I think that self-criticalness was a part at one point that I would sometimes become a victim of.
Thoughts on Breathing
Breathing may be the number one part of my mindfulness. It's so great because it's always with us and just one breath or even one part of a breath or noticing a breath can bring us right back to it.
My intention is to start noticing it when I first wake up and to be aware of it all through the day. I love the practice of noticing and feeling the breath rather than trying to impose a perfect breath.
