Conscious breathing is the most commonly practised stress reduction technique and has been recognised for thousands of years as an effective way to calm the mind and allow healthier and more uplifting thoughts to arise.
To practise conscious breathing, try to focus your attention on the sensations of the flow of air passing every pathway to reach the lungs, and observe these sensations without the desire to change or modify anything. Simply be aware and observe.
The increasing oxygen levels in the blood actively reduce the stress hormones cortisol and epinephrine and purge them from your system with the long exhales.
Wherever, whenever, practise taking even just three long conscious breaths, and return the clarity and beauty of this present moment.
Now is the perfect opportunity to feel good.
