Isn't it amazing that something so simple as breathing is the one thing that keeps us alive? Because it is involuntary sometimes we take it for granted and only come to appreciate it when we have difficulty in breathing.

 

Today's bite-size tip is to use breathing as a tool to relax, de-stress and/or energize yourself especially on a tiring long day. It is simple and you can do it anywhere.

 

When you are ready, close your eyes (so that you will not be distracted)

Keep your back straight

Begin with an audible sigh, then slowly inhale deeply. 

Notice how relaxing a slow and deep breath makes you feel.

Breath normally. Become aware of your breathing as you inhale and exhale slowly.

Repeat the cycle for at least 8 breaths.

That's it! Try it today. Do it as often as you need.

Come, let's flourish together!
