When you exercise in a way that integrates mind with body – good
things start to happen in your life. Let me list five of them for you:
First, you begin to feel energized. Fatigue goes out the window as
cells filled with purpose and passion circulate through your entire
Second, you lose track of time. There is only the here and now.
Concern for what you “should have done” or “could have done” are
replaced with an appreciation for this very moment. Worry and fear
about the future doesn’t exist.
Third, you start to see your breathing as the real “staff of life.”
After all, you can live forever without bread, you can live for a few
weeks without food and several days without water. But you cannot
live very long without air. Keep this in mind whenever you catch
yourself breathing from the upper chest instead of from the belly.
Fourth, as you begin to appreciate the very air you breathe, this
feeling extends outward and energizes other areas of your life. Your
energy field changes and people pick up on it. They feel different
around you and don’t know why. YOU, however, do.
Fifth, when you get into an energized breathing rhythm, whatever you
think about is given “rocket fuel.” Whether you’re walking,
stretching, swimming or doing Hindu Pushups and squats, once you get into a groove, once you catch the rhythm of success, this feeling
extends to whatever matters most to you. You can literally make
seemingly miraculous things happen in your life when you consciously
breathe as you exercise. You enter an altered state of being – and
once in this state – if you think about the things that matter the
most to you, they will be given so much energy that they may take on
a life of their own.
Now, you may wonder HOW you breathe while you exercise. For example,
if you breathe the standard way taught in weight training, will you
enter the zone the way I have just described?
While it is possible, the truth is it probably won’t happen for you
this way A simple inhale and exhale with no real focus on the air
you’re breathing and what to do with it won’t do much for you.
On the other hand, if you pay attention to the way you are breathing
and the way you are feeling when you breathe; if you pay attention to
how you’re moving your body as you breathe, then it is possible for
you to make progress so quickly that realities can shatter before
When you combine focused deep breathing to your exercise regimen,
it’s pretty hard to say afterward, “I don’t like it.” The only way
you could say this is if you don’t have a pulse.
No matter what type of exercise you are doing, be sure to pay
attention to your breathing. Forget the extraneous and superfluous
thoughts of yesterday and focus on making TO-DAY the best day of your
Zen Master of the Internet®
and how this will bring you to the next level of success.
