Breathe with me 😊
Breathe slowly in & out as you scan your body from the top of your head, down to your toes. Allow your face, eyes, jaw, neck & shoulders to relax. Focus on the rhythm of your breath by placing one hand on your belly & one on your chest.
Without judgment or trying to change anything take note of any physical & emotional sensations.
I call this a personal inventory check-in. Use this time to find relief from stress & anxiety. To reflect & determine what you need more or less of day-to-day in order to improve your overall wellbeing.
As I’ve been rolling out our Breathwork Meditation Series one question keeps coming up👇🏽
“How can I create a daily breathwork routine?”
I’m glad you asked because breathwork is one of the most accessible, simple & actionable healing tools & the health benefits are abundant 🙌🏽
Check out the tips I share with my clients to help them build a daily breathwork routine👇🏽
〰️ Download a free meditation app like Insight Timer so you have access to high-quality guided meditations.
〰️ Keep it simple. Use beginner meditations & stick to 3-5 minutes to start.
〰️ Be patient & trust yourself. It takes time to build a breathwork habit. It will get easier the more you practice. Find breathing exercises that feel good in YOUR body. What works for someone else might not work for you.
〰️ Schedule it! Put it on your calendar & set a timer to go off at the same time every day. Find 3-5 minutes of uninterrupted free time & fill it with your daily breathwork check-in.
〰️ Routine! You brush your teeth every day, drink water, eat, etc., it’s part of your routine. Why not add 3-5 minutes that allow you to build a healthier relationship with yourself?
〰️ Do this 👆🏽 by picking roughly the same time, location & maybe even the same meditation every day, at least until you’ve built a stronger routine.
〰️ Don’t worry about “doing it wrong.” There’s no such thing as perfect. You’ll always be a student. JUST DO IT 😘
