Daily Highlight 277 - Breathe Deeply

Thursday, December 05, 2019

Highlight -
The strangest conversations are the ones I have with myself. Last night:
"I want to chew on something."
"Take a breath, inhale slowly feel your ribs expand and stomach rise, pause, exhale fully."
"Okay that worked."
Sometime later...
"I need to gnaw."
"Breathe!"
"Fine, that helped."
Even later...
"I need a snack."
"No you don't, you only think you do."
"But I want it..."
"Breathe!"
"It's not helping. I need something to chew on."
"What do you really want?"
" I want to be healthier, move easier, have less pain."
"Are you going to get there by Nighttime Gnawing?"
"No... I guess I'll breathe deeply to help me get to my goal."

I didn't give into the craving. The desire did pass.
Breaking a habit or craving is tough it can be done. Breathing and thinking of my ultimate goal helped me be successful.

Grateful -
Good customer service, saved me from making an extra trip.
Having a Plan B when what you want is out of stock for the season.
Having stamina to go out shopping.
