Kindness is Like Snow
“Kindness is like snow, it beautifies everything it covers.” ~ Kahlil Gibran
If I was to choose just one thing to practice in my day, it would be kindness. Being kind to myself and others brings with it an authentic sense of Joy. This is the best therapy, and it’s free!
At times when the bully inside me starts taking over, and I need to make a little room for kindness, I use a very simple breathing technique. It’s called the Falling-Out-Breath, or as I like to call it, the F.O.B. I use it all through the day to drop back into my body and re-set my thoughts to kind mode.
The instruction is simple: Take a big breath in through your nose, and let the exhale out through your mouth, like a sigh….ahhhhhhhh….. Done! Now repeat throughout your day! See what happens!
