You try to reflect on your breathing. Your breathing feels quick. You are taking short breaths, and the cold air stings as you inhale.
You move through your body, acknowledging it and how it feels. Your shoulders and arms are shivering. Your arms and legs are cold, and covered in goosebumps. The muscles in your feet are starting to strain. Open your eyes, look down, and see that you’re wearing an uncomfortably tall pair of heels.
You focus on your breathing. You take a long breath in, hold it, then slowly let it out. You repeat.
