breathe

deeply… was going to say properly but not minded to get you thinking about whether you are breathing wrong. For the anxious already ,it’s an unnecessary burden to have to think with each breath am I doing this right. What has google to say today .

Diaphragmatic breathing has widely known benefits in reduction of stress, tension and anxiety – calming the body’s “fight or flight” response to better focus the mind and the body.

First, find a quiet place where you know you won’t be disturbed. Lie down on your back on a flat surface. Put one hand on your upper chest and one on your belly, just below your rib cage. Close your eyes and breathe in slowly through your nose. You’ll feel the hand on your belly rise noticeably, while the hand on your chest will barely move. Then tighten up your stomach muscles and slowly exhale, allowing the air to gradually escape through your lips. The hand on your stomach will fall quite a bit, while the hand on your upper chest will hardly move.

There you have it. Thank you Breathe2Relax.

So just relax and  let your stomach rise and fall while your chest stays put.

Inhale – exhale – inhale – exhale….

Have a nice day

25day
