Part 1: A Simple Tool to Start Feeling More Present, Calm, and Peaceful Today with Annelies Richmond

Are there certain important parts of your life that are frequently triggering a stress response? Do you feel yourself distracted, with your mind often somewhere other than the here and now? Research shows that on average 50% of our attention is in the past or future. Which means we are not being truly engaged in half our life.

In this part 1 of my interview with breath expert, Annelies Richmond, we discuss the physiological role of breath in controlling our nervous system and the emotion centers of our brain. Tune into the episode to learn from Annelies how breath removes past traumas, freeing us to live more in the present; how it calms our stress and anxiety, allowing us to find more joy in our daily activities; and the way it helps us not be reactive to our environment, but in control of our inner state.
