What is your Focus right now?

Garden thoughts are what you think about when you focus on the positive. The garden of your mind can be a wonderful place to visit.

 

The Outdoor Garden
I believe that being outdoors is the most anti-depressive thing you can do. When you are out there, your thoughts cannot sway into the negative because our world is such a beautiful place to be. Even when it is not sunny,  there are so many wonders to gaze at. And even when it is dark or cold, there is light!

Breathe in and Breathe Out

Take a break and just gaze at the wonder of nature. It slows you down, and you can capture peace for the moment.

Slow Down, you move too fast!

There is so much information on the fact that you can slow just about everything down just by learning how to breathe better. Slowing down the rhythm of your breath can be so very helpful in many situations.
When it comes to stressful times, just being able to gather yourself, still, quiet and centered can be so very helpful.
These easy breathing techniques should be taught to very young children, and may even prevent such ailments as asthma because one learns how to slow down the breath and stay calm even when your body may be saying otherwise. Placing ones hands at your heart center and placing some pressure on the breastbone has also been found to help slow down the breath.
