Effect on Emotions
- I’m much calmer now. I have a much longer view of things and I don’t get so caught up in the moment.
Thoughts on Breathing
- My cousin-in-law taught me how to breathe because he’s doing a lot of mindfulness and so I find myself, I get a lot of migraines and I find myself lately saying, okay, drink some water and just breathe and it’s been able to eliminate about half of my migraines

Mindfulness Meets Bullying Story
I am such a positive person; like I really have a positive mindset and I was made fun of and things like that but I never really felt bullied except for this one time.
I had switched from a public school to a private catholic school in fourth grade. It was because my sister was starting kindergarten I believe and my mom was tired of driving us to those cd classes on Monday nights so she put us in the Catholic school. I’m sure there was more to it than that, but that’s what I knew.
So I went there and Catholic school are very small and the kids start in Kindergarten and they go all the way through. You don’t transfer in very often. I found that some girls had made a club against me. I remember coming home and my mom had this black rocking chair she’d gotten from my grandmother and she rocked me. I was a fourth grader and I just cried like a baby for what seemed like forever and she just sat there and rocked me. That’s all I remember about that story.
I’m still Facebook friends with these people; we have a great relationship now.
