“For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on earth.” Sanskrit Proverb
You hear it everywhere — when stressed or angry, take a deep breath. But if you try it, it really works. Inhale slowly through your nose to the count of 8 focusing the breath on the front of the body and feeling it enter your nose, down into your throat and lungs and into your abdomen. Hold it for 2 seconds letting the oxygen work its magic within you. Then exhale through your mouth for the count of 8 focusing the breath on your back and head coming up through your spine and releasing all the negative energy back out. Repeat this 10 times and feel the circular motion of the breath as it enters down the front and leaves up the back. You will feel more relaxed — try it!
