Rushing around? Change the pace: Tune in. Grab a glass of water, or just sit still. Think of three things you enjoy about being still for a moment.
Take 3 mindful breaths. Choose your focal point: notice the breath enter and exit through the nose, chest, or stomach.
Anxious? Take a few long, deep breaths. On your next task, move slowly. Speed only hides panic.
