Take A DEEP Breath

Take a deep breath, ahhhhhhhhh
Now take another deep breath, ahhhhhhhhh
How many deep breaths do you consciously take each day? Each hour? Many of us meditate. What if the main reason of all these meditation disciplines was to get us to breathe more deeply on a regular basis?

The single greatest thing you can do for your health is as simple as breathing. So we start by becoming conscious of our inhalations and exhalations.
 Now I challenge you to this: Consciously tell yourself and your people:"I'm going to step out for some oxygen." And really go full tilt. Try alternate nostril breathing from yoga. Using your hand cover the right side of the nose while deeply inhaling on the other side. Pause for one second. Then remove your hand, finger and let the exhalation come out the left side. Pause for one second. Then breathe in the right side of the nose, while covering the left side, then exhale the lest nostril. Repeat for 3-5 minutes. This is a very calming, soothing breath for the mind. It balances the left and right brain hemispheres.

See what you've been missing? This is what you need.
