Breathing Exercises to Reduce Stress

Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress in the body. This is because when you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax. The brain then sends this message to your body. Those things that happen when you are stressed, such as increased heart rate, fast breathing, and high blood pressure, all decrease as you breathe deeply to relax.

Working ON Your Business Instead of IN Your Business

I feel like all roads lead to where we're at today. Every decision, every action, even every thought.

Someone recently said, if you could go back and ch...
