Yes, it’s been tough. Tougher than you imagined, and you are still standing. Good for you. For those moments when your brain starts whirring and going down the rabbit hole, remember to breathe. It helps. And you will feel better.
Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.
