Life can be hectic, even when everything is going well so remember to take time for self-care. This will ensure you’re living fully in the present, and it will also help you do things that are in alignment with your deepest dreams and desires.
Breath work is a great way to work in some quick “you” time, and it’s also free and something you can do anywhere. Breath work connects you to your Higher Self, which is where your source of wisdom and intuition can be found. Doing this work will have a positive effect on you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, and it’s easy!
Find a quiet place and sit in a relaxed position. Close your eyes and consciously inhale slowly through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Follow the breath down into your belly, about 2 inches below your navel. Follow it up as it leaves your nostrils. You can practice for a minute or build up to 31 minutes or more. One minute of deep breathing is a powerful stress release!
Don’t try to “figure” anything out. Answers will come in perfect time; just focus on your breathing. You’ll find as your physical tension is released, the deeper emotional and mental fatigue or blocks you’re dealing with, will also start to disappear. When that happens, everything begins to shift and you’ll see things through a different lens.
