Cleansing Breaths

Sometimes all you need
To relieve your stress
Is to take a deep breath

Breathe in through your nose
Take in as much air as you can
Fill your lungs completely
Hold it for ten seconds

Then exhale from your mouth
Empty your lungs completely

Repeat for a few breaths
Release all your tensions
And your stress disappears

    This is so true Fandango! Many therapists suggest this to relax and off-load stress and tension. Thanks for joining in with this very practical advice.

    It’s almost always the best place to start.

      We all need to take a moment now and then.
