It may seem obvious...we need to breathe to survive. Yes. I have known that for a very long time:) But learning HOW to breathe to calm your mind and body is different. Practice Belly Breathing today. Take long, slow, deep breaths with your hands on your belly to make sure your belly is going up and down as you breathe rather than your chest. You can imagine you are smelling a fragrant flower if it helps. Breathing this way will help relax you. Try it when your kids are on your last nerve. Try it when you are stressed about work. Try it when you are perfectly happy:) When you have the hang of it, teach your entire family. Even your toddlers!!! Have a great day. Remember...breathe.
