(30-40 inhales, hold on exhale, inhale again for 10-15 sec) 4th round can be on hold and squeeze. * Cold Shower always start and end cold. Stay until you feel comfortable. (do warm up exercises before and after) Shake the shivers and stay relaxed in control of your breath. * End with 5-10 min meditation simply observing breathe, silence behind noise, body awareness - At the end what are you grateful for and how do you want your day to look like. * Water with Lemon and then Bulletproof Coffee or Tea 1. Pay attention to your breathe on each exhale slow it down as much as you can. 2. Pay attention to your body awareness s and feel it expand. (you can start with your hands) 3. Pay attention to the silence behind noice and go deeper and deeper into subtle, slow "ocean" like realms. 4. Bonus pay attention to light (flicker or beam) from your forehead. If using mantras, the most effective I found the universal truths: Inhale "I" Exhale "Essence". (repeat as needed feel response in your body. Another one Inhale "I AM" Exhale "Pure Love", Inhale "I am" Exhale "Infinite", Inhale "I am" Exhale "Eternal". System Reset: Tap into the waters in your body.
