More in Details 

Our mind is very busy with many thoughts and we become more reactive therefore we attract the thoughts of stress, anger etc.

 Imagine, you are standing on the side of road and traffic is coming and going and you get distracted with noises of honk and horn. Become an observer or, witness them and bring your awareness back to the breath while breath in and breath out.


Attention goes where energy flows. Here you are giving attention and energy to the breath so the thought of noise of horns honking disappear very soon. Relaxing and deep breathing exercise can help you to absorb the maximum amount of oxygen inside that can mix with blood and purify your brain cells and declutter all kinds of useless thoughts. It is same when others are creating tension and stress upon us, become responsive but not reactive and take your time to reply back to them depending upon situation may be few seconds or minutes. Never reply to them immediately, otherwise more anger and stress take place. Create a gap or space between two thoughts, words, or actions is also important practice.


Witnessing means deep observation. Here, you can notice that there is an expansion of abdomen while breath in and contraction of abdomen while breath out. Keep on watching it and become an observer. Gradually you can notice that stress, anger etc. are not anymore because you are bringing your awareness back to the breath not to the thoughts of stress.


Another deep practice you can do while breath in, you can visualise that you are taking support or help from the Universe and while breath out you are releasing thoughts of stress, anger etc. along with breath. Last practice you can do, you can feel the awareness of gap between outbreath and inbreath. This gap can help us to pay attention, slow down and watch out our thoughts that can help us to decrease our reactivity.
