The benefits inclucde:

This breathing exercise has both long and short term benefits:

Step 1:

Sit, stand, or lay in a comfortable postion, so you can relax your shoulders, your forehead muscles and your eyes.

Step 2:

Taking a deep breath in, imagine that your tummy is a balloon you are trying to fill with air, slowly fill your tummy to a count of 4 and let your abdomen (tummy) rise.   Hold your filled balloon like tummy for a count of 1.

Step 3:

Now slowly start to exhale all the air out of your balloon to a count of 6.

Repeat this breath cycle for 5 minutes to feel deeply relaxed.

TOP TIPS:

  • You might like to keep your hands on your tummy as you do this exercise so you can really feel the rise and fall of your tummy – this will help you stay focussed and connected to your breath. 
  • Try and keep your chest as still as possible to allow the air to fully inflate and deflate your abdomen.
