Reduce Stress with Breath
Updated: Nov 22, 2021
Wouldn’t it be great if you could spontaneously close your eyes and find yourself in deep meditation for just a few minutes each day? Imagine what that would feel like in your body, but like anything else, to become good takes practice. Do you have five minutes? How about three? How about you take three minutes right now to stop, sit comfortably, close your eyes, rest your hands in your lap and breathe deeply through your nose and exhale through your nose. Feel your body tighten up during the inhale, then feel it relax into the exhale. Just breathe. Doesn’t that feel good? How do you think you would you feel by the end of the week? The end of the month? How about by the end of the year if you simply stopped for three to five minutes each day? This is the challenge: Today through Friday, simply put a reminder on your calendar or on your phone. Set a timer and breathe.
