Simply, the single most important effect an awareness of your breath brings is focus. 

 

If you are focused on even a single breath, you aren’t distracted by the regrets of yesterday or the anxiety of an unknown tomorrow. 

 

That breath brings you to the here and now. 

 

Being conscious of a single breath, 

 

as we learned earlier with the Six-Second Breath, 

 

and staying in the moment, 

 

is a simple yet valuable perception for easing anxieties about the past and fear of the future, 

 

keeps you tuned to whatever task is at hand, 

 

and provides a strong bridge between mind and body.
