Just Breathe - A Real Stress Reliever
Breathing exercises is one of the best stress relievers and a great way to increase your energy. One of the best breathing techniques comes from a yoga. It is the art of Ujjayi, the "psychic" or victorious" breath. The technique is very simple and extremely powerful when done correctly.
Use this technique whenever you want to cool down in a stressful situation or just relax. Try it - you will see a huge difference in your stress level.
• Sit comfortable with your eyes shut
• Breathe in deeply through your nose at the same time contracting your muscles around the top of your windpipe. Focus on your throat and you should hear a gentle hissing sound.
• Now, breathe out as slowly as possible through your nose. Focus on your throat and you will hear a gentle hissing sound.
• Now breath out a slowly as possible through your nose, closing off the muscles around your epiglottis. Your breath will sound like you have a bad cold.
• Breathe in and out in this way for six times
• Now relax and breathe in and out normally six times.
• Repeat this process four full cycles ( six Ujjayi breaths, six normal breaths)
