Here is a quick breathing technique to help ground yourself, clear the mind and helps alliviate headaches. You will use calming, grounding statements as you breathe, like:
Inhaling (through left nostril, closing right nostril with right thumb), “I am breathing in calm” or “I am breathing in good energy.”
(Close left nostril) Exhaling (through right nostril), ”I am breathing out anxiety” or “I am breathing out bad energy ,” or “I am safe.”
Repeat rounds 6-10 times, focus on keeping breath smooth, deep and rhythmic. You will not want to practice this exercise if you have a cold. If pregnant, please check with your healthcare provider.
Watch for future grounding posts using gemstones, essential oils and my favorite, hugging trees!
