#tbt “A ação de não lutar será tão minha quanto a ação de lutar. Mas as conseqüências não. Elas não serão minhas, pois não dependem de mim. Não posso querer para mim o poder de controlar a natureza de todas os seres e coisas. Não posso basear minhas decisões nos seus resultados porque estes eu não domino. Devo me concentrar nas minhas ações.” 🧘🏾♂️ #arjuna#ator#bhagavadgita 🏹@quedeusoueuteatro 📸 foto da maravilhosa Flora Negri @floravnegri

When you take slow, steady breaths, your brain gets the message that all is well and activates the parasympathetic response,m. When you take shallow rapid breaths or hold your breath, the sympathetic response is activated. “If you breathe correctly, your mind will calm down - and so will you
