Take a breath.

Actually do it; take one, big, deep breath.

Remember to let it out, no need to pass out.

Once you take one, notice how you instantly breathe easier.

One breath takes a moment.

One breath reminds you that you still have time for more.

Your to-do list will be there.

Your financial report will not run off.

The conversation you are in the middle of will not spontaneously end.

Remembering to breathe slows you down.

Slowing down, even for a moment, is exactly what your cognitive process needs.

Thoughtful leaders create space to breathe.
