Stop whatever you’re doing right now and for 60 seconds breathe in and out of your nose. Close your eyes if that feels comfortable. Breathe slowly. Filling the whole space between your belly button and collarbones. Placing one hand on your lower belly and one on your upper chest can help you connect more deeply with your body. It can also help you feel yourself breathing into those spaces.
Do you feel better now than you did 60 seconds ago? Do you feel calmer and more relaxed? Is that the first time you stopped to check in with yourself today?
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been bombarded with requests for quick and easy ways to combat anxiety and stress, so I’ve decided to dedicate some serious time creating & providing breathwork content.
So what is it?
While practicing breathwork or breathing exercises or breathwork meditations you will learn how to notice, acknowledge, control, and direct your breath. This practice teaches you how to breathe consciously, with awareness, and intent. Not only does this practice teach you how to connect with your body more deeply and become more self-aware but the health benefits are plenty. I’ll dig into the benefits in more detail over the next several weeks and months, but in the meantime know that breathing like this, even for only a few minutes a day will help you quickly and easily reduce stress and anxiety, while also relieving mental, physical, and emotional tension and pain.
Breathwork is great for high stress/high anxiety situations, so save this post and come back to it at least once a day or as many times as is necessary to help you become more balanced and centered, and to help you find relief from stress and anxiety.
Give us a follow if you aren’t already and keep an eye out for our new Breathwork Meditation Series that’ll I’ll be releasing soon.
Keep breathing, we’ll get through this ❤️
