breathing in stillness: ten belly down + seated movements

Start with ten seconds
Taking a pause in stillness to notice breathing might be akin to taking a moment to notice being --being alive, being you, being ready for the next moment perhaps.

Some days the pause is welcome and some days it might be overwhelming, and you can practice it when it feels ok, a little bit at a time. Even ten seconds that you're aware of can be a moment of beginning.
