Breath is the key! Here's a simple exercise: Before you start your day, sit on the edge of your bed or in a chair, with a straight spine. Close your eyes. Take 10 slow, deep breaths in through the nose, out through the mouth, exhaling fully. Focus on nothing but the breath. Specifically, practice a 10 second inhale, a pause, and then a 20 second exhale. (Don't look now, but if you've done this, you've actually meditated for 5 whole minutes!) Do this morning and night. Also, check in frequently throughout the day. Is your breathing relaxed and deep, or is it tight and shallow? When you catch yourself holding your breath, or breathing in a shallow way, relax the body and take a couple of full, deep breaths. You’ll be amazed what this simple tool will do for your mind, nervous system and life!
Tiela Aldon Garnett...
...was born some time ago in Los Angeles, California...
Her father was a famous Motion Picture and Television director and her mother was an actress. There was a 31-year difference in their ages (her father was older) and she was their only child. If you want to know more about her early life and family, you'll have to read the book, but it's not out yet.
She has two children, Taylor and Chloe. Her children think she's "special." Taylor was born in Paris, France and Chloe was born in Brooklyn, New York. They're grown up now. Mostly. Both of her children are artists.
If you want to see what the author's family looks like, there are pictures under the "Photo Album" tab!
Tiela discovered her passion somewhat late in life, and that's okay. She's appreciating every minute of the journey, and isn't that the goal? She is happily committed to the process of her evolution, and has come to accept her humanness. She will joyously assist you in your process, too, because she's an International Life Coach!
She has stories, recipes, photographs, and occasionally wisdom to share.
Please enjoy her blogs about Paris, her Paris journal, and her stories, all under the "My Writing" tab, as well as her Paris Recipes!
