I am a huge fan of The Hustle (a witty Online that site that sends a daily email about Business, Technology, and Culture) While I was reading one of their daily emails, I came across a Story about how deep breathing helps with reducing stress. As I read and scrolled through the article (while I was in an Under Armour store waiting for my wife and daughter who were in the fitting room as I pushed my sleeping son in his stroller), I came across the image above and couldn't help but try to follow the simple instructions. After two synced breathes, I immediately felt recharged and calmer. I gave me a few minutes to gear up and get ready for the adventures that a baby brings when they wake from a nap. With that being said, I wanted to post and share because sometimes we need to just breathe. This inspirational gif is a small reminder to just take a few seconds to get your life on the path you want. On the path that helps you achieve tranquility and focus one breathe at a time.
This is my first official blog post on my new site and I thought it would be extremely fitting to blog about something that directly connects with my journey towards personal empowerment and my son's first steps. We all start off helpless, crawling, and eventually stepping into the world with the same excitement, same obstacles, and same curiosity towards life! Over time steps just become steps and the motion becomes expected as the excitement fizzles out. The routine, monotony of life (and cold weather of NJ) can sometimes get in the way of our happiness and dreams. When that happens we must remember to slow life down (like Aidan did for me tonight) and realize that sometimes the next journey is only a few steps away. I share this video to remind us all to start getting back up and taking steps in the directions that make us the best versions of ourselves. Towards achieving happiness with things (that aren't things) that sustain themselves for long durations, and towards what we know in our hearts will ultimately bring us what we are looking for in this life! Now go and take some small steps towards what makes you happy!
