Why Are You Rushing? How to Slowdown Thru Breathing

We’ve all heard it before, it’s called:

  • The Rat Race

  • The Program

  • The Matrix (Red Pill or Blue Pill?)

  • Keeping up with the Jones’s

  • Well “They Said”

  • Well “They Did”

  • Well “They Know”

You know that thing that tells us how we should do things and so, we try to keep up in a frenzy of:

  • Hurry

  • Booked Calendars

  • Working Hard

  • Live Now Sleep When You Die

  • Hustle Hard or Go Home


The reality is the culture of “RUSH” never serves anyone, anything and most of all; yourself, any good.

So why do we push ourselves to arrange ourselves in such a way that our days is not filled with:

  • Flow

  • Alignment

  • Working Smart

  • Restore

  • Leaving all on the table

  • Balance

  • Boundaries

  • Consistent habits that keep our minds productive like: reading, writing, emotionally stable, exercise and a healthy diet?

All of the above sounds like Utopia or at most, for millionaire gurus who aren’t rushed to pay bills, has a staff and even better, a nanny to manage the kids.

But the reality is, we all can leave the rush, rushing, rush it culture.

Want to know how?

It’s simple: dedicating the practice of stilling your mind through the cultivating effective relaxation techniques.

Relaxation techniques are a great way to help your pursuit to reduce stress—a process that decreases the wear and tear of life's challenges on your mind and body.

One of the most powerful and useful techniques to debugging yourself from the rush syndrome is through relaxation exercises of deep breath.

Deep Breathing and How To

Performing breathing can be therapeutic, and with enough practice, can become your standard way of breathing.

To breathe with the diaphragm, one must draw air into the lungs in a way which will expand the stomach and not the chest.

Deep Breathing Best Practices

It is best to perform these breaths as long, slow intakes of air - allowing the body to absorb all of the inhaled oxygen while simultaneously relaxing the breather.

To do this comfortably, it is often best to loosen tight-fitting pants, belts, skirts as these can interfere with the body's ability to intake air.

Practice Makes Habit and Ultimately Lifestyle

Performing deep breathing is therapeutic, and with enough practice, it can become your standard way of breathing, helping your mind be still and slowing down your processes to not rush through life; yet be present right where you are and respond accordingly.


Whether you have a lot of stress in your life or you've got it under control, you can benefit from learning how to breathe deeply.

This gives you access to a part of you, that the busying world around you says, “You’re too busy for,” which is:

  • Your Creativity

  • Your Imagination

  • Your Ideas

  • Solutions (that work for your life)

Maybe that’s why the millionaire turned guru got to the point of working smart not hard: maybe they mastered the art of stillness through techniques of breath.

If you feel out of touch that is even possible for you, why not take a chill pill, deep breath and relax for a while?

Because when you do, you embrace possibilities!
