One of the best ways to improve your level of stress is by improving the way you breathe. How you breathe does make a big difference in how you manage your emotional health. This week we launch into a series designed to improve your emotional and physical health by improving your lung capacity. You'll be guided using a different breathing technique every day. Think of this week's series are your personal Breathing Bootcamp. If you suffer from asthma or COPD, or if you are recovering from COVID19 Coronavirus, this week's breathing techniques may be especially beneficial for you. (As always, with any meditation technique, you want to make sure to check with your medical doctor).
THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE:
Practice the breathing exercises every day for a few minutes and eventually build up to doing them for 5-10 minutes a day.
