Wellness Now: Your Oasis in a Hectic Day
I know I'm a broken record when it comes to reminding people to breathe. But we often forget about taking those slow, deep breaths...and fall back into the old habit of shallow breathing or - worse yet - holding the breath when we're stressed!

Yes, it's my mantra: Remember to breathe! A full inhalation brings you energy while a slow exhalation reduces anxiety. The breath is an amazing all-purpose tool...and even better, it's always available. Just breathe (deeply).
May you be well,

Breathing is like meditation
for people who can't meditate!
Conscious breathing - paying attention to the in-breath and the out-breath - is an effective way to quiet internal chatter. Since breathing is automatic, bringing awareness to every breath results in a beneficial mental shift.

Try Chin Press Breath below and welcome a sense of inner peace. Coordinating movement with the breath gives the busy mind something to do!

CHIN PRESS BREATH

  • Sit with a tall, extended spine. Close your eyes or maintain a soft gaze.
  • Inhale for a slow count of 5. Hold the breath in for 2 counts.
  • Exhale for a slow count of 7 as you lower your chin to your chest. Hold your breath out for 2 counts.
  • Inhale for a count of 5 as you return your head to center.
  • Repeat the movement in coordination with your breath as many times as you wish.

(Feel free to adjust the count to whatever works best for you.)

Enjoy the wonder of your breath!
