If you could teach the world one five-minute lesson, what would it be?
If I could teach one five-minute lesson, it would be on breathing. The breath can quiet the mind and reconnect us to our bodies. It can calm us or energize us. It can give us that pause before we react. It is a tool that is always readily available. Yes, a lesson in breathing for everyone!
