The breath is one thing that is with you your entire life—from the moment you cry out as a baby to your final exhale. The body changes, and so does the mind, but the breath is always consistent. While working out, the breath is essential for endurance and strength. This postworkout meditation will help you appreciate your hard work, and enable you to cool down with attention to the breath. Scan the body to notice any areas of tension, and with your mind, let go of anything that’s not serving you.
