“I live in one of the busiest and noisiest places in the world, New York City. Some nights I have difficulty sleeping due to outside distractions. How and where can I find peace and quiet in my everyday life?” We all have moments when it is difficult to surrender our repetitive thoughts and let go of the difficult aspects of our day. This is usually a reminder to breathe, be still, and come fully into the present. Mindful breathing is crucial to your higher self. It is the one thing you can do to become more present with any distraction in your life, whether on the street, in the office, or late at night when you are restless. So breathe deeply and consciously whenever you can!
