Take A Deep Breath
Most people don’t breathe deeply enough. Especially when
stressed, we tend to gulp air in a shallow fashion, barely filling
the upper chest.
The next time you feel panicked or anxious, or even just tired &
spent, try this simple exercise.
Breathe in slowly for 4-8 seconds.
Wherever you’re comfortable beginning.
Hold the breath for the same amount of time:4-8 seconds.
Exhale the breath for the same amount of time:4-8 seconds.
Repeat this at least 4 times, each time trying to draw breath
deeper into your body, through your belly & your lower back.
Try not to think about anything else but your breathing.
Listen to the sound of it. Feel it coming in & going out.
You can use this technique anywhere, & at any time, to reset
your sense of physical & mental well-being.
