I've been feeling a little anxious and have been taking 5 minutes breaks to simply breathe and let my brain re-connect with my body while listening to calming music through my headphones. I stumbled across composer Brian Crain who I have been listening to a lot lately, even when I'm not practicing mindful breathing.
Recently my 4-year old came into my office and asked me why I was listening to such sad music, which made me chuckle. I told him it was my calm music, and 5 minutes later, he was on the floor beside my chair, fast asleep. (Kid tested, mother approved. Mindfulness works! Sometimes too well!)If anyone has any additional suggestions in practicing mindfulness as well as calming sounds/artists I should listen to - please send them my way!
