4-7-8 Breathing Technique

  1. Wear comfortable clothes.
  2. Choose a comfortable sitting position. Support your buttocks with pillows or props like a yoga block, if necessary.
  3. Straighten your spine. Rest open palms on your thighs.
  4. Close your eyes. Take a couple of cleansing breaths and then breathe in and out in a slow rhythm. Relax. Mentally let go of thoughts about your external environment. Let your heart be open.
  5. Breathe in quietly through the nose for 4 seconds
  6. Hold the breath for a count of 7 seconds
  7. Exhale forcefully through the mouth, for 8 seconds
  8. Repeat cycle 3-4 times

Side note- it helps us to write in a journal how we felt before and how we felt after the practice. Sometimes you can notice the change of mood when you write it down 🙂 ❤Thank you ❤ Hope you guys enjoy it.
