Take a Breath. Seriously.

Take a Breath. Seriously.


It all started on a stressful Tuesday morning for Expio team member Talley. Deadlines loomed, her inbox overflowed, and her patience was wearing thin. She felt herself teetering on the edge of a breakdown. That’s when Expio Founder and CEO Andy Roller suggested meditation. Desperate for relief, she decided to give it a shot.

That evening, she settled into a quiet spot in her living room. Unsure where to begin, she searched for a Youtube video on meditation. The instructor’s soothing voice invited her to close her eyes. “Start by focusing on your breath,” she said. “Feel the air enter your nose, fill your lungs and leave your body.” She slowly inhaled and then exhaled.

She had taken her first conscious breath. At first, it felt awkward to sit on her living room floor simply breathing. But as she continued to follow the instructions, she felt her jaw unclenching and her shoulders relaxing and lowering.

Determined to see if this practice could help, she made it part of her routine. Every morning for five minutes, she did a breathing exercise. Within a week, she noticed a shift in her overall stress levels and productivity. She was able to focus throughout the workday and felt less stressed. Her peacefulness carried over into her personal life as well.

Talley’s story illustrates the power of mindful breathing and meditation. In a world that often feels overwhelming, these practices can be a lifeline, helping us find our way back to a state of balance and focus. By taking the time to connect with our breath, we can find the calm and confidence we need to get into the zone.

Breathe in. Now, exhale.

In our fast paced world, finding moments of calm and focus can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Yet, amid the noise and distractions, there exists a powerful tool that can help us tap into a state of tranquility and heightened awareness: meditation. At Expio Digital Marketing, teammates are encouraged to use this helpful tool in our daily lives.

Expio fosters a culture of healthy lifestyle choices that ultimately lead to better happiness and performance on the job. We invite you to do the same.
