Just Breathe

Breathing is something we've been doing on auto-pilot since the day we were born. There is no need to think about it we just do it. There is, I'm finding a wonderful power in breathing consciously. Take a moment and pay attention to your breathe. Are you taking little baby sips of air or are you bathing your lungs with oxygen from deep full breaths? 

Try a round of conscious breathing the next time you feel a bit off or disconnected:
Close your eyes, put one hand on your belly and the other on your heart. Take a deep breath in through your nose bringing the air in down into your belly. You should feel your belly extend with your inhale. When you feel that you can't take in any more air take an additional sip of air to fill your lungs to capacity.  Breathe out through your nose, breathing out every drop of air in you lungs. When you feel that you can't exhale anymore exhale just a bit more. Repeat this 3x and you are sure to press the reset button on your day. ENJOY!
