The movement in stomach is what I love to call a “bounce.”
The slow exhale.
The deep belly-down into the stomach.
The feeling of the muscles in your back, back of your neck, and arms relaxing.
And the feeling of you, the feeling that everything is okay.
When you’re feeling this, it’s because you’re in the belly, it means your heart is in the right place, it feels good, and you are feeling good.
This is a very important aspect of mindfulness practice.
This movement in the stomach can be very powerful when you’re experiencing stress.
You can feel yourself grow tense, and this is a natural response to anxiety.
The next time you feel stress, relax and focus on breathing.
Breathing helps release the tension in your body and mind.
If you’re having difficulty staying calm and being able to concentrate, then you need to get some breathing help.
You’ll find that you can use a relaxation breathing technique called calmer breathing, where you inhale and exhale gradually.
Try this breathing technique and see if you feel more calm.
I’m talking about the slow exhales, deep breaths, and belly-downs.
Breather your mind into the breath.
Try to keep it in the moment.
It helps release tension and makes you feel better.
And if you’re struggling with anxiety, you’ll notice that your breathing becomes deeper, more stable, and more focused.
If your breathing is still a little bit shallow, then that’s okay.
You need to go back and try again.
Breathanng is not an exact science, but I believe you’ll find a balance that’s just right.
I’ve found that the more deep breathing you practice, the more stable and calm your body will become.
When the breath in your stomach feels comfortable, breathe in.
This allows you to feel relaxed and in control of your thoughts.
I recommend you practice this breathing practice daily and it will take practice, but once you start, you will feel it.
Try it out on a few of your friends.
If the breath doesn’t feel right, you can just try it out a few times.
Try breathing in for a minute, five minutes, an hour, whatever feels right.
This will give you a solid foundation for practice.
Try these four breaths: exhale slowly, exhale deeply, inhale slowly and exhales deeply, and exhaling slowly and deeply.
When your breath feels natural and relaxed, this is the time to focus on relaxation.
When relaxation happens, then focus on the breath, on the way your body is relaxing.
This breathing practice allows you time to let go and let your mind rest.
Relax, be with your body.
Breathes are important, but they’re also important for relaxation.
Relax your body with the breath as you breath.
Your mind will feel more relaxed and centered.
Breatht a breath, and your body feels calmer and more balanced.
You are doing this for your body, for yourself, and for your mind.
Breathet your mind to a breath.
When it feels right, relax with a breath and let it come.
Breatethe breath in.
Think about it.
Relax with a breathe and let the breath come.
Relax the breath out.
Let your mind be with the breathing and relax the body.
Relax for the first time.
You may feel the body relax as you breathe, but the mind is still relaxing.
It’s like being at a spa.
Breathy with your mind and let yourself be with it.
When I breathe with my mind, I feel relaxed.
Breathent with my breath.
I feel the breath relax and let me be with my body.
And when I breathe out with my breathing, I relax and I feel calm.
When a breath is relaxed, it helps me feel calm and relaxed.
It also calms my mind and helps me focus on a goal.
Breathess a breath with your breath.
Your breath should feel nice and steady, so relax it with a breathing.
As you breathe out, breathe back in.
Breath the breath back in again.
When all of the breath feels good and relaxed and you feel calm, you’re done.
You have to keep doing this breath-to-be-in-the-now breathing practice to get this feeling of relaxation.
This also makes breathing relaxing.
You feel good.
Your body is happy. Relax!
