Tips from Thursday’s session

If you have 1 minute:

Place hand on belly. Breathe in through the nose for a count of 3, breathe out through your nose for a count of 3, pause for a count of 3. You‘ll be more relaxed in 1 minute! If you have 2 minutes:

Count down from 10. With each number take 1 complete breath. Breathe in deeply saying 10, then breathe out slowly. Do this with 9, 8....until you get to zero. If you have 3 minutes:

Clasp your hands together and place on head. Bend to one side - one elbow will be pointing to the sky, the other to the floor. Take a breath as you open your lung area and stretch your intercostal muscles. This also helps relax the accessory muscles and breathing becomes easier. If you have 5 minutes:

Do coherent breathing - breathe in through your nose for a count of 5 and out through your nose for a count of 5. Do this for 5 minutes. You have just boosted your immune system and balanced your autonomic nervous system!
