Day 11 - Breathing for calm focus

Today we are looking at a breathing technique which will boost your immune system, keep your lungs healthy and give you a sense of calm focus. This will help essential services which are required to go out and work as well as those needing to work or attend to schooling from home.

In this practice we are breaking the breath down into four parts – the inhale, the pause, the exhale and the pause. Each element is of equal length. We breathe in for a count of 4, pause for a count of 4, exhale for a count of 4, and pause for a count of 4.

Get comfortable in a chair. Put your feet on the ground and feel your body in the chair. Place your hands on your lap in way that is comfortable for you.

Practice breath awareness – feeling your breath in your body, feeling the breath as you breathe in and breathe out.

Exhale completely

Inhale through your nose…1, 2, 3, 4

Pause for 1, 2, 3, 4

Exhale through your nose or mouth…1, 2, 3, 4

Pause for 1, 2, 3, 4

Do 4 rounds then rest, then do another 4 rounds.
