Breath Control

I was teaching a class today the balanced breathing skill.  Essentially, a deep breathing technique that I have mentioned before and can be found here and here and of course here.  The reason why I mention it so much is you have to keep doing it every day otherwise you don’t get the benefits that having a higher heart rate variability can bring.

I told the class this morning the same thing and some places and times that you can practice the skill.

Right after you wake up in the morning. fullsizeoutput_12de

At a stop light waiting for traffic.

Right before you start your day at work.

On a break at work.

After lunch.

Before a workout.

After a workout.

Pumping gas.

Right before you go to bed.

Just a couple of minutes here and there add up.  You can use biofeedback to see how you are doing, but you don’t need it to just breathe.  Sometimes I will catch myself breathing with my diaphragm automatically.  Which is good, but in order to get there the idea is to be aware and take control.

God Bless
