you know, we've talked about this before but meditation for me is very difficult because when I become because I'm a disordered breather and I Cry d chronic hyperventilation when Become conscious of my breath my breath gets worse. Hmm. Is that common? And is that why I don't want to meditate you
and I are a lot alike. But from what I've picked up on, you know, I mean, we're type A so it's like well, let's do this. Now. I can do more I can tack on more and then when I think about something I overthink about it, right so that it's just that monkey brain type idea, you know like but I mean, this is what I went over in the, you know presentation earlier. About the brain and it's like the brain operates for us we pack in more stories and more things and then there's these other systems that have been in play for like 500, you know for a long a long long time, you know, as our Evolution has happened and these are the reactive side. So when we get into The Reptilian side of things that's where the reaction starts to happen in our breath is attached to that reaction, but the interesting part about that is when we start to overthink things. We start to interplay with that as well. And so the emotions that can be attached to those things. Then the byproduct of our reactive system, you know, like all our autonomic things heart rate, you know visual cueing that blinking like all of that like, oh I shouldn't blink that much. What do you mean? Oh now and all of a sudden I'm blinking more than I supposed to and so now I'm thinking about my breathing and I think I'm disorganized with my breathing and yeah, you know, maybe you're not maybe that's just overthinking and so that's the idea. Idea of turning it into something that it's training. Yeah, you know, I think that's where technology comes in well for me it has I'm not reliant on technology, but I spend a lot of money a lot of my business dollars on Tech to understand what's really going on under the hood if I actually manipulate this or I do this, right and then what's the byproduct of that? Oh, I just I'm sleeping better. Like why do I feel refreshed but I'm not getting more hours of sleep, right? I'm still getting seven hours of sleep at night. But like I feel better. Oh, this is actually having an impact.
