Everything Is Meaningless

For today
Practice your breath. Really practice. Try different methods of breathing; both in and out of your nose, alternating nostrils. In your nose and out your mouth. Breathe in deeply, and then like a lion, open your mouth wide and let your tongue hang out, growling on the exhale. Allow yourself to restore attention to the very involuntary habit of breathing. In moments of panic, shallow breathing increases our anxiety to the point of helplessness. Reclaim your breath as often as you can; there is nothing more to work toward today.
