fresh start: breathe yourself anew

Friday. Yoga. Back on the mat. Learning the ceiling with a gentle gaze.

Breathing in, breathing out, breathing in, breathing out. An automatic cycle.

Instructor: “Just like each day is a chance for a fresh start, each breath can be a fresh start. You can start anew with each breath.”

I breathe that one in. I breathe that one out.

I can start anew with a single breath.

I don’t need a Monday or a New Year. A single breath will do.

Searching the ceiling. Mind goes where it always goes: What does this mean for my business?

It means I can refresh with the smallest action. I don’t have to wait for a product launch, or a new website, or a new logo. I can start fresh with each blog post, each email, each Tweet, each client session.

Any oridinary action I want can be a whole new day. I decide the sunrise.

I once heard Aaron Sorkin speak. He takes showers multiple times a day because he likes starting fresh. He’s breathing himself anew.

Are you waiting for the sun to tell you that a new day is here? Or will you start one for yourself? With a walk, a tea, a song, a blog post, or simply a breath?

How will you start anew? Breathe life into the comments.

  1. Wow. What a great reminder. I’m going to start anew several times today by just breathing and simply stating. It’s a new moment. I LOVE it.
    Thanks so much!

  2. It always helps to be reminded of the power of choice. We can choose to start again right now or we can postpone it until we feel we can (by which time we will probably have forgotten it) – always better to start this second.

  3. I love to take a long walk with the dogs in the middle of the day. When we get home, I feel so energized, it’s like beginning the day all over again! Love this fresh, concise post!
