Breathing In, Breathing Out

“‘Breathing in, I calm my body.’ Reciting this line is like drinking a glass of lemonade on a hot day–you can feel the coolness permeate your body. When I breathe in an recite this line, I actually feel my breath calming my body and mind. ‘Breathing out, I smile.’ You know a smile can realx hundreds of muscles in your face. Wearing a smile on your face is a sign that you are master of yourself.”  (pg. 10)
