Mindful Breathing Benefits
Have you heard the one about the guy who tries to wake up his son for school?
"Billy," says the dad, "wake up!"
Billy groans "I don't want to get up."
Dad shouts, "Get up, you have to go to school."
Billy moans "I don't want to go to school."
"Why not?" asks dad.
"Three reasons," says Billy.
"First, because it's so dull; second, the kids tease me; and third, I hate school."
Billy’s father answers: "Well, I am going to give you three reasons why you must go to school.
First, because it is your duty; second, because you are forty-five years old, and third, because you are the headmaster."
We all know the feeling. I don’t wanna but I gotta. In the short-term, we can use mindful breathing to ease our unease. (In the longterm, let’s try to change the hated situation!)
