Breathe

Not sure what your best approach to mindfulness should be? The easiest one to start with is to learn to breathe!

Yes, we know you think you already know how to do this, that’s what makes it so simple. Breathing slowly reduces a stress hormone called cortisol and helps get you back to a calm state (of equal balance).

The benefit of this approach is you can do it right now.

  • Close your eyes.

  • Breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds.

  • Hold your breath for 4 seconds.

  • Breathe out for 4 seconds.

  • Keep your lungs empty for 4 seconds.

  • Repeat all this 4 times.

How do you feel? Most say they feel instantly calmer!
