Just Breath....

Deep breathing is a simple and useful tool to utilize whenever your stress level begins to creep upward. To fully experience the calming effect that deep breathing can create, follow the steps below.

• Lie down on a flat surface in a quiet place.
• Close your eyes or focus on a fixed position above you.
• Place a hand on your stomach just above the navel. Place the other hand on your chest.
• Breathe in slowly for 3-8 seconds. Feel your stomach rise slightly.
• Exhale slowly for a count of 3-8 seconds and feel your stomach return to normal position.
