Pregnancy and labor is one of the most painful pains a human endures. Practical advice given at that time to the ladies that really works is to “Focus on Your Breathing.”
Breathe In – Breathe Out – Repeat…
Why is it so?
It is because focusing your mind on a repetitive action takes it into a hypnotic trance. It’s just like the swinging to and fro movement of a hypnotist’s classic pocket watch.
Once your mind is in a hypnotic state, all thoughts are gone. Your mind becomes empty and it can relax.
This breathing focus trick is just a hack to get your mind into a no-thought zone. Once you are there, you can defocus on breathing and keep the thoughts away and keep your brain silent.
It’s only in the silence of your brain you can listen your heart talk #FeelHearty
