When in doubt or overwhelm the primary key to remember is “Just Breathe.” Breathing is the solid foundation to every body system and the peace of heart and mind. So, take a moment and consider how deep you are breathing. Attempt to take a full inhale for 7 counts and a full exhale for 10 counts. Repeat 5 times gradually, smoothly, not forcefully. Assess how you feel.
Proper breathing mechanics are used in every exercise routine, meditation, and during times of expected pain (ie. Labor pains or historically in minor surgery). The power of the breath is the power to give your body nourishment even when you feel without. Try this breathing exercise once every hour you are awake or set aside time for a longer cycling of breaths (13-21) 1-2 times a day and notice after 1 week how you feel.
