Stress is distracting


i have noticed that stress can definitely distract me from being mindful about my breath, and my posture.

Yes....stress is absolutely a factor affecting every aspect of our health and well-being. A certain amount is normal and healthy, but when it's chronic it is not only distracting but harmful. Even after you have made the posture more or less automatic, stress will often throw you off because it causes that belly to tighten up, and you don't even realize it. This still happens to me at times. - Surviving
