Are you feeling stressed and overworked, at the computer too long? Try this and change your energy in as little as 10 minutes.
Focus your attention on your breathing. If you are like me and most of us who work on computers or at a desk, you are probably not breathing very deeply. Right? This happens when you are focused and working at the computer all the time.
So, I want you to pay attention to your breath. Just breathe in and out for a few cycles, easily and effortlessly in and out, like a baby, not changing anything, just experience breathing as fully as you can.
Now, take a deep breath and as you exhale, let go of any physical tension from your body. Just feel the tensions drop away like ice sheets off a glacier. Take a second deep breath and this time as you exhale let go of any emotional tension or cares from your day. Leave all your worries behind for the next few minutes.
Now I want you breathe in and feel your breath fill your belly. Feel your belly rise and fall as your breath flows in and out of your body. Breathe deeply into your belly, just like this, in and out.
Just let yourself relax and breathe, nothing to do—just breathing and being breathed for the next 5 minutes.
Breath is the simplest way to bring us back to our center. It is always with us. By breathing with awareness the energy within you and around you can settle. Your energy will change, you will feel a sense of space and openness and your mind will settle after a few minutes of breathing this way.
Try this whenever you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed out. It will help stabilize your emotions, and mind. Know that with each exhale you are releasing the tensions and the stress you have been feeling in your body and mind.
Be well and keep breathing! Aloha Elizabeth
