calm down DEEP BREATHING

'Deep breathing is free, and it's right under your nose!'

BREATHE EASY ~ We have all been told to 'take a deep breath'. It is recommended that we take that advice with this 4-7-8 breath exercise.  Doing this daily will induce a feeling of serenity and over time it will give you greater emotional resilience-especially during difficult moments. 

1. Rest the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth, just behind your top teeth.

2. Exhale completely through the mouth, with your lips tightly pursed, to make a whoosh sound.

3. Close your mouth and inhale deeply and slowly through your nose for a silent count of 4.

4. Keep your mouth closed and gently hold your breath for a silent count of 7.

5. Exhale slowly through your open mouth for a count of 8, making the same whoosh sound.

6. Repeat steps 3,4 and 5 for a total of four breaths. Perform this twice daily for optimal results.
