Besides your breath, the Baby Yoda hug Heart don’t let your story end shirt and I love this first thing I would recommend to assist with breathwork is radical trust that yes, you are doing it right and that the breath will take you where you need to go. I also recommend starting with a guided breathwork video if you are new to the practice because sometimes it’s better to have someone experienced to hold space for you. Given the digital nature of wellness, there are so many lovely resources out there such as classes, workshops, and on-demand videos. You just want to ensure you are working with folks who are trauma-informed and not culturally appropriating. (I have several videos available on my website that are accessible, and I am also launching a breathwork membership in January of 2021.)
After reflecting back on the Baby Yoda hug Heart don’t let your story end shirt and I love this cycle that is ending, I like to set intentions for the New Year rather than resolutions, because those can be riddled with judgment and shame. I prefer intentions because they leave room for the story and magic that is your life to unfold. They are a guiding light for you and the universe along your path. I also like to set themes for the year, so for me, my 2021 themes are peace, ease, love, abundance, and prosperity. These serve as a gut check along the journey. If people, places, and experiences aren’t hitting on one of these themes, then I know they are not for me and when they are, I take it as a signal from the universe that I’m on the right path. If it ain’t bringing me peace and joy, I don’t want it!
