Air is the very essence of life. Often we do it without even thinking, but without it, we would not have life.
Below is a strategy I use everyday as soon as I wake up.
- Empty the lungs of air
- Breathe in quietly through the nose for 5 seconds
- Hold the breath for a count of 5 seconds.
- Exhale forcefully through the mouth, pursing the lips and making a “whoosh” sound, for 5 seconds.
- Repeat the cycle up to 5 times.
If you are struggling with your breathing, try this mantra: “I breathe freely and fully. Breath is the basis of life.” – Louise L. Hay
