Pause With Me

Pause, Breathe, Repeat,


How are you breathing?

If you’re like most, no matter how often you check, the answer is usually “not very well”.   Modern humans habitually default to short, shallow breaths and periods of breath holding as a response to the stress of daily living. 

Pausing for a full, diaphragmatic breath provides a physiological mini-vacation for mind and body.  The People’s Pause is mindful breathing program that fosters self-awareness and resiliency. 


Remembering to Remember: Mindfulness 101

Basic neuroscience and repeated kinesthetic experience are what make these short bursts of “On the Go” practice work.  Intentional pauses harmonize mind and body for a moment of relative ease. Like a mental athlete, repeated practice builds new brain muscle for calm and focus.

Come, pause with me.  Learning to effectively pause is the first step in any journey towards mindfulness.


Breathe Easy

The idea of mindfulness is a big one.  The experience of a single, deeply relaxing breath is a simple one. The People’s Pause bridges both worlds with a practical path to mindful living, one breath at a time. 

Targeted training in positional breathing deepens capacity for relaxation.   Pauseworthy Moments integrate the practice into everyday activity. Repetition builds new habit.
