For everyone who needs it:
Here’s a moment of beauty. An open rose. A sweet scent. A breath of clean air.

„So yes, the #ocean is responsible for about 50% of the #oxygen produced on the planet. But it’s *not* responsible for 50% of the air we humans #breathe. Most of the oxygen produced by the ocean is directly consumed by the microbes and animals that live there, or as plant and animal products fall to the seafloor. In fact, the net production of oxygen in the ocean is close to 0.“

Feeling the warm Italian air…and the dry crunchy soil as it exhales the aroma of olive tree leaves as I walk.
And the tree trunk, that trunk…twisting, gnarled wood…the swirl and story of ages and ages.
I lay my hands on it and breathe in…and then breathe out.

Trying really hard to remind myself that the universe only dishes out what you can handle.

And breathing!

Inspiration rises from the calm space within. Pause, find the center, and breathe. Solutions come when they aren't being chased.

A Hidden Underwater Resource Is Worth Way More Than Expected, Study Reveals : ScienceAlert

#Kelp #Forests provide food and homes for much of our coastal seafood.

We also #eat the kelp itself, use it to #fertilize crops, add it to #medicines and #skincare, and #breathe the oxygen it produces.

Yet kelp forests are in a #catastrophic #decline, and we don't fully understand the extent, let alone the value, of what we're losing.

"For the first time, we have the figures to demonstrate the considerable commercial value of our global kelp forests," says University of New South Wales marine ecologist Aaron Eger.

But don't be fooled by the radio
The TV or the magazines
They show you photographs of how your life should be
But they're just someone else's fantasy

So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because you never win the game
Just remember that it's a grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same
We're all the same

#MusicMonday #breathe #music

Hemingway spent creative time in his “writing shed,” puffing away on his signature pipe.

So did Twain.

Dylan Thomas, Virginia Woolf, and Roald Dahl also penned their seminal works separated from the rest of the world.

George Bernard Shaw built a revolving “hut” to allow him to follow the sun.

Whenever you need to really think, getting away from the hustle and crush of daily life can give you breathing room.

You don’t /need/ a shed. But it helps.

Lately, I’m thinking of how easy it is to get caught up in our lives...
We forget to look up. We forget to listen. We forget to breathe deeply and just be.

just a moment,
calm water and monday sunrise…

#breathe #sunrise #AtlanticOcean #ocean #LandscapePhotography #grateful

Calm water and sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean this morning.

In these trying times I thought it would be helpful to share a video I made about the Box Breath technique to reduce stress, and stop panic attacks. This technique is used by US marines, first responders and other personnel to short circuit the stress response.

If you enjoy it or find it useful, please #boost

It’s completely the wrong time of year, I know, but here are some dandelion clocks. I think they’re rather calming and I, for one, could do with a bit of calm right now

#DandelionClocks #Dandelion #Calm #Breathe

The first of four macro photographs of a dandelion clock head, this one, soft and completely in tact.
Another view of a dandelion clock, this time showing the involucre, the circle of green leaf-life bracts immediately underneath the flower head.
A dandelion clock head with many of the seeds missing. The empty part ofthe centre looks somewhat like a golf ball and attachments of each seed look like spears, pinned into it.
Another view of a dandelion clock with all seeds attached. The wispy seed heads make it look perfect as a fairy bed.

Whenever you get twitchy bc it’s taking longer than you’re used to for your notifications or comments to load, remember that there’s a highly-caffeinated sysadmin person hustling to absorb millions more users into/onto the Mastodon Fediverse. Hold your shorts on and give it a second.

Are you reading this on a phone? Lift your head. Look all the way up. Look straight ahead of you. Roll your shoulders back and then forward. Hunch them close to your ears, then relax them. Lean your ear to shoulder. Repeat with the other side. Take a deep breath. Exhale deeply. Take a drink of water. Shake it out. Okay back to work. 😊

“The calming effect of breathing in stressful situations, is a concept most of us have met before. Now Professor Micah Allen from the Department of Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University has come a step closer to understanding how the very act of breathing shapes our brain.” https://neurosciencenews.com/breathing-brain-21796/?fbclid=IwAR3OOBJAZRy4oenrkwlDQ3JfgmnHAOmWq5oXmAzOFFExHCEAPRYSu2BRPxc
