We never know which comes first; our next breath or our next life.

I plan on the next breath. And to combat stress, yes yogis do have stress too😔 I practice longer exhalations to stimulate a relaxation response.

Despite our breath being our source of life, we tend not to notice it. Let’s bring awareness to your breath and change that.

Like right now?

1-min breathing – focus on longer exhalation

Goal: four-second inhalation and 8-second exhalation. This takes 12 seconds, which gets you five inhalation/exhalation per minute. You can use your fingers to count.

If this is difficult start with four-second inhalation and 6-second exhalation. With practice, you will quickly improve.

Increase this practice to two minutes if you’re feeling especially stressed out.

And if it needs to be easier…

For one breath, release all tasks, fears and regrets that aren’t necessary to exist in this moment. There: you’ve just visited Home. – Inspired by Martha Beck
