Breathing Matters

This piece was inspired by the discussion surrounding physician burnout and how to tackle this problem. In small letters along the bronchi and bronchioles are words describing ways to reduce stress — whether that includes meditation, exercise, time spent with family and more. The writing is small to invite people to stand and think about their own ways of relieving stress and inviting the viewer to pause.
