Today, I just breathe. The best that I can. I will sit at my desk and I will work on signing my students out. And I will breathe. It may not be as optimistic as a bucket list, but I’m going to keep on trying.

I will try Andrew Weil’s 4-7-8 breathing pattern after each student leaves my office. Basically inhale 4 counts, hold for 7 counts, exhale for 8 counts.

Of course the theme song for today is “Breathe” by the lovely Lexie Grey (or Chyler Leigh, whatever.)
