2.Inhale deeply. Do not rush inhale. You should feel your stomach expand. You should not be just breathing into your chest! Breathe in until you cannot breathe in any more. You should be ‘full’.
3.While performing inhalation use your focused mind to direct energy, your breath, into your belly, and then down into your legs all way into your toes. You have filled your entire body with energy!
4.Exhale smoothly and naturally. For this exercise, nothing is forced.
5.Repeat up to ten times.
Try it, right now! Make sure you will not be disturbed. All you need is five minutes (if that), throw open a window, and experience what it feels like to direct your breath and energy through your whole body!
As I delved deeper into deep breathing exercises I created small routines that helped me stay active and a profound change in how I trained and thought materialised. By training from inside out I felt healthier and learnt how to amalgamate my deep focused breathing with my goals. What I found was exercises created a sense of awareness mentally and I began thinking about goals I wanted to achieve while doing them!
As I did this each day I felt strongly compelled to take action towards them. By breathing life into mental images I found I was improving internal health and generating positive momentum towards objectives!
So, next time you are stressed out or trying to focus, give above exercise a go to help in relieving stress, increasing energy levels, and adding a little much needed focus towards goal!
