Easy-Peasy Stress Relieving Breath

The holidays are over and it’s time to face a new year! Many peoples resolutions include becoming a calmer and more healthier person… so I am here to help you get your new year and resolution off on the right foot with using your own breath to relieve stress!

The breath is one of the most useful tools we have to settle our mind and relieve stress.  This advanced breathing technique is really quite simple and accessible to anyone, anywhere, any time.

It’s called Square Breath.  It’s super easy to remember how to do because you do it just the way it sounds.

The beginning breath ratio is 4 x 4 x 4 x 4.

Easy right?  Start with a really deep breath in and just release it.

Then seal your lips and:

  • breathe in through your nose for 4 counts
  • hold the inhale for 4 counts
  • exhale through your nose for 4 counts
  • hold the exhale of 4 counts

That’s one round. In as 5 rounds you can completely shift your mind towards more peaceful thoughts.

Here’s an audio guide for you.  Go ahead and download it to your phone or computer and use it any time life seems to run away with you.

Have a wonderful and calming day!

Karen 🙂
