Ari often says this to me.
i was chuckling about it this morning.
when i start holding my breath, stressing out, trying to speed things up, i always end up tripping over myself, spilling milk that then needs to be cleaned up, forgetting something important i then have to go back for, etc.
i constrict and my field of view narrows.
when i keep my breath and body open, everything ends up done just as fast, or maybe even faster, without me ending up all drained.
