This technique can be used to keep you calm anywhere, improve digestion, lower muscle tension, help manage anxiety, and even increase your endurance!
Start by laying on your back with your knees bent up to your chest. Then put one hang on your chest and the other below your ribcage. Breathe in slowly through your nose, counting to 10. The hand on your rib should move as you diaphragm expands, but the hand on your chest shouldn’t move much at all.
Tighten your stomach muscles as you exhale through your mouth slowly, counting to 10 if you can before inhaling again.
A good way to visualize this is to think about your lower ribs expanding out to the sides as you breathe in.
Please do this now and enjoy the benefits!
