Five Minutes a Day

The Five Minute Miracle

I recently was asked a question

about this practice, and wanted to

return to it: as this is a cornerstone

of Lifewriting and the 101 Program

1) Every three hours, at every hour

divisible by 3 (6,9,12, 3, 6, 9) stop

what you're doing and breathe

deeply for sixty seconds.

2) The breath should be low

in the belly, and slow as

comfortably possible.

3) As you breathe, you can read

your goals, remember the

steps of the Hero's Journey,

or any other basic patterns of

life that will inspire and uplift you.

A simple, deceptively powerful

practice. It disrupts the spiral

of stress into strain, and can

change your life.
