Day 1 : Breathe, Relax, Notice, Choose (B.R.N.C.)


At some point, all of us get to a place where we’re on the brink -- we feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and like the world is caving in on us. In these moments, it’s important to have tools to help us pause and more easefully and kindly respond, instead of reacting in ways that make us feel worse. So, today's practice uses the handy acronym B.R.N.C. to help you remember that when you’re on the brink, you can Breathe, Relax, Notice, and Choose how to proceed.
