piece by piece

I woke up this morning after a great nights sleep for once. I motivated myself to listen to morning meditation. I got out of bed got ready and put my pillow on the floor, sat there for 10 minutes and meditated to have a worry free day. I was excited to go to work for once. As the day goes on I can feel my mood slumping a little bit. Not completely unhappy but I no longer seem to be able to have complete control of my thoughts. I feel myself counting the hours until I can go lay in bed and just hope this year is over in the blink of an eye. 


My first thought when I start to feel this way is I want to run away.


What can I do at work to calm all the negative thoughts.


I want to be in control.

I would suggest really tapping into your breath... make sure that on your inhale you completely fill your lungs and let your exhale be slow and steady... it helps give you a sense of control... try thinking about how the air feels as you inhale... is it hot or cold, can you identify which nostril is the dominant one, is the air thick or thin... the more detail you go into the more you will let go of your other thoughts and before you know it, you are back in control!

keep up the great work! You got this :D :D :D I believe in YOU!
