Settle Your Mind Today
The two times of year that are overly hectic include the Christmas 🎄 Holiday Season and Springtime. Today we are at the height of the former, and if we don’t take a minute to breathe, we might just experience combustion.
What to do?
UNPLUG FOR A BIT
At some point in this day, make it a priority to be in a quiet space, unplug all screens and devices and stay still for a period. For some people this period may last 5 minutes, for others, it could be an hour. Close that Office door and start the aromatherapy diffuser with a peaceful essential oil, engage in a breathing exercise, rest in front of the fireplace, take a bath, read from your favorite book or take a lovely walk with your best friend in the brisk fresh air.
Just give yourself five minutes today to momentarily recharge.
• Inhale and exhale rapidly through your nose, keeping your mouth closed but relaxed. Your breaths in and out should be equal in duration, but as short as possible. This is a noisy breathing exercise.
• Try for three in-and-out breath cycles per second. This produces a quick movement of the diaphragm, suggesting a bellows. Breathe normally after each cycle.
• Do not do for more than 15 seconds on your first try. Each time you practice the Stimulating Breath, you can increase your time by five seconds or so, until you reach a full minute.
