Pause & Plan – Willpower Breathing excercise

Hey guys! It’s Wednesday and we are half way through the week. Just love that feeling. Not because I hate the beginning of the week, but because the mode shifts to a different kind of mode. And variation is one of my favourite things. Even the bad kind. Perhaps not initially, but long-term, as it always brings me new perspectives and appreciations for things. Getting to know myself better.

Anyways, I don’t if your Wednesday is as good as microwaved Banas with cardamom served with walnuts, raspberry’s and yogurt, but mines freaking great! I just had an exciting conversation with a random girl I approached on my way home from work. If you’ve missed it, it’s a part of my week challenge. If you’re curios you can see the video where I introduced the challenge here (link), and if you want to hear me tell the story of what just went down, you can see the replay live stream I did 30 minutes ago here:

Besides that, I’m not going to say much more today. Need to get working on a video I’m editing. BUT, I just have to share this great video on the topic of willpower I stumbled across today ( it’s in the beginning of this post). I know I’ve already been discussing it a whole lot here – but willpower is the theoretical focus of the week. And I just love to nerd in on stuff.

What I particularly want you to take with you is a breathing exercise they present – 10 seconds in and 10 seconds out. I tried this for 20 minutes on the train home before approaching that girl I talked about. It’s some scientific evidence backing it up for enabling you to enter a state of “pause & Plan” – the opposite of the Fight & flight mode we enter when adrenaline enters our system. Don’t take my word for it, I’ve just started doing it (but I liked it). Instead watch the video if you’ve time, it’s well put together.

Thanks for stopping by & See you tomorrow!
