Sleep, Relax & Recharge
We often carry habitual patterns of tension in our body throughout the day, which can inadvertently create more stress and anxiety.  This meditation helps you use your breath to release tension and stress, and unwind tension patterns from your body.

Breathe in
If I breathe into the tension, it melts away. This really helped me relax.

Breathing in, targeted the tension and letting it melt away. I like that!

Actually....
A Yogi explained to me how to inhale from the tailbone to the top of my head and exhale from the top to the tail. Once i managed this process, which is quite sensational, it became possible to move the breath to other areas of the body. Life changing, ancient medicine!

Tension
Breathing into the tension deep in my stomach helped to release it and I was then able to label it as anger

Stress
I can do something to ease anxiety. I am dealing with stress caused by a needy family member whom I love but drains me emotionally. Will use this breathing technique as a release.

I must be too tired to be able to focus this way. This just didn't work for me.

Take 2 aspirin and call me in the morning... This is truly a self discipline that is a working RX for stress and tension relief.

I feel tension throughout the day as my stress builds and I ignore that stress because I become too focused on my work. I learned that sometimes I may need to stop and breathe to release that tension. It’s hard though to prioritize your own self over your work when you have high goals. It’s a must in order to have a healthy mind.

I loved being able to focus on tension parts of my body and breathe them out. I had never done this before and it was very fulfilling.

Breathing out tension
My feelings have been large waves of overwhelming nature recently. I’m trying my best to stay calm throughout this mental storm, but it’s been really challenging my focus. This meditation helped me zone into breathing out those heavy overwhelming waves.

Super focus
Great guided meditation; breathing into the tension and then breathing that tension out and into the ground. It’s nice to have a place to put it. 👍🙏

It’s hard to focus today. My anxiety is through the roof. Her voice was so calming but I couldn’t focus enough for my mind to focus on relaxing the tension.

I hold a lot of tension in my chest and stomach, so breathing in and releasing it was very relaxing. A levels are stressful!

Tweaks be gone
Breathing into the little muscle stiffness allows the recognition of it but also allows me to let it go.

1st session
I was able to recognize tension within my body and try to “breath it away”. It somewhat helped my stress.

2nd Session
I was having a really rough night tonight, and this really helped me focus on areas of tension that needed to be released. I feel much more relaxed and peaceful. I can now face the problems without the stress.

It kept me mindful
I love these focused meditations. I can generally stay in mindfulness throughout. I did this one in a coffee house and the surrounding noises did not interfere this time!! I’m a work in progress. Practice! Practice!

Still anxious today
Gave this session a solid try this morning, but I think my current stress and anxiety is just too deep seated. This Memorial Day morning just reminds me that our state and now county, are are on strict lock down due to the Chinese bioweapon arrack we’re under. We now are directed under penalty of massive fine and jail time to wear face masks everywhere at all times. This means I cannot wear my new glasses to see because no matter how a mask is fitted my glasses fog up. I’m attempting to not leave home, not out of fear for anyone’s health but because we’re seeing stories of people driving with their stupid masks on and causing auto accidents! It’s ludicrous! You don’t “quarantine” a majority healthy population out of fear of spreading a virus to the few with real compromised immune systems! That’s ass-backwards! It also has a near 100% survival rate for God’s sake! If you have valid health reasons to sequester yourself from the majority of the population, that’s YOUR onus, coronavirus or not! Don’t limit my freedoms out of your fear! Don’t force businesses to alter their operation, or close down completely, due to mass hysteria! Don’t make minimum wage retail employees responsible for the health and safety of the population with stupid rules imposed by corporate management! I found out this morning that one of my student’s mother is pulling him out of school for the coming year out if her fear for her own (admittedly compromised) health. This kid was JUST starting to come out of his shell, making friends, participating in activities he enjoyed...he, like so many of my wife’s students who are suffering through school being shut down through to summer now, NEEDS school to be mentally well! Online distance learning means little to these challenged kids! Especially the special needs kids in my wife’s class! Let alone trying to move my own youngest daughter through completing her sixth grade year here at home! She misses her friends so much! It’s heartbreaking!

Breathing into neck/shoulders definitely helped ease tension, but breathing into the third eye helped relieve worry and quickly brought me to the present.
