I’m deep breathing as I send this.
Breathe life in. Breathe stress out. Increase energy, improve circulation, send better oxygen to your cells and brain, change your mood, and reduce stress, all by taking a few long, slow deep breaths. Before this became habit for me, I found remembering and doing that first breath the most difficult. Now I realize, and you will too, it’s mere seconds, and you’ll want that second, and perhaps a third deep breath. You will feel more relaxed, and less stressed immediately after you do this. I promise you. Instant gratification!
- Take a long slow breath in..and hold it momentarily
- Purse your lips, making a tiny hole, so it takes you a few seconds to exhale fully
- Repeat. It works.
