I'm swapping out chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips for five minutes of yoga style breathing. I will be using this for times of stress. I had an extreme moment on Friday. That moment induced an egoic response out of myself which I am not entirely proud of however instead of lashing out at the person I was with I ate. I am creating a behavior modification for that kind of situation. I will excuse myself. I will do 5 minutes of yoga style breathing. 1 minute deep breathing. 1 min. Left nostril shut, 1 min. rapid breath of fire, 1 min. right nostril shut, 1 minute deep breathing. I am hoping that this substitution will have a good effect on my bottom line. I don't really want the ice cream anymore. I don't want to use it to help me cope. I am switching out my coping mechanism. Out with the chocolate. In with the yogic style breathing.
