It is so early in the day but I feel quite overwhelmed. It feels like there is this internal chaos that I could hardly breathe. Duncan Sheik's famous song comes to mind.

I feel bottled up.

Then I remembered one of the early famous bloggers, Leo Babauta who became famous for writing about simple living. I am glad I did because that led me to his Zen Habits blog and his The Beginner’s Guide to Zen Habits: A Guided Tour.

Leo's first recommendation was to BREATHE. So, yeah. I breathed in. Breathed out. And I instantly felt better. Greatly aided by this simple but effective quote he shared:

‘Smile, breathe and go slowly.’ ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Feeling better and thinking a bit more clearly, I also heeded his advice to put the word "BREATHE" as my screensaver or desktop pic.

I downloaded wallpapers showing green natures, put the word "BREATHE" on them and made a slideshow of them as my desktop background. I also made a note to self, to just see my laptop's desktop slideshow whenever I feel anxious or negative or something.

The only caveat was that I am using Windows Home Basic on my laptop which does not support slideshow.

Normally, such snags encountered will shove to a funk. But I remembered to BREATHE.

I was able to find a come around. John's Background Switcher was heaven sent. Hat tip to John!
