Day 19 – Breathe

How many times a day do you remember to breathe? None?

The breath is the key to reaching the autonomic (involuntary) nervous system that controls our entire system. By practicing deep breathing exercises, we can learn how to relax and tap into our natural healing abilities.

Make today the first of many days where you start your breathing practice. A simple way to start is by simply pausing your activities and focusing on your breath. This is also the basis for many forms of meditation.

Sit upright on a chair, spine straight. Now, focus on your breathing. Breathe in and watch how you naturally pause at the end of the in breath; then breathe out and notice when you finish and the space in between the out breath and next in breath.

Practice this for five minutes. Now, notice the difference in your mood, emotions and feelings. How do you feel? Are you more calm? Relaxed? Let me know how this practice works for you by leaving a message for me.
