A Breathing Exercise that Will Transform Your Day
How do you feel as you wake up and begin your day? Are you overwhelmed by everything surrounding you or are you calm, ready for a new day?
How do you feel as the demands begin falling on your shoulders? Are you tense or ready to enjoy each task?
I’m guessing most of us are overwhelmed, tense, and stressed for a good portion of our day. Why is this? What’s the key to finding a peaceful, calm foundation to live by? You have the answer, you have the power to change, and it’s available to you at any time for free!
So what’s the answer to a calm, happy life? Your breath.
It’s true, I know it sounds so simple and easy that it can’t be effective but it is. Let’s look at how powerful breathing is.
When you take that deep breath in you immediately correct your posture. With correct posture you reduce & eliminate bodily pains. The most common areas of pain include back, neck, and shoulder.
Breathing becomes easier when you maintain good posture. Combining good posture with a deep breath and you will feel the pain leave.
The more pain you release the more your muscle balances can correct and eliminate future injuries.
When you slouch you lose your core muscles and you prevent good digestion. There’s no need for 1000 sit ups when you have the opportunity to maintain good posture throughout your day. Your core’s endurance becomes off the charts.
Correcting your posture improves your muscle tone, flattens the stomach and improves your confidence, body image and self esteem. If you slouch, you are suppressing your stomach and colon preventing good digestion.
Mindful Breathing Establishes a Mind-Body Connection
When you breathe deeply you give yourself the opportunity to feel your breath, feel what your body is holding on to and where, and feel where your mind is distracted. As you connect your movement to your breath it becomes more mindful. As you connect your breath to your thoughts you decide what really matters.
Mindful Breathing Creates Positive Change
With a few deep breaths you can change the moment you are in, your day, and your entire day. With every inhale you can manifest. With every exhale you can release.
The sort of breathing I am speaking of doesn't need to be difficult - I've created a free guided video for this breathing exercise. Are you ready to enjoy the benefits of breathing through your day?

As you continue to practice your breathing, give yourself an advanced challenge to see where you are at. Just for fun, choose the longest line at the bank or the grocery store. Breathe slowly and pay attention to your bodily sensations. Put those waiting times to work for you, instead of regarding them as the enemy as you rush to the next thing.
