There's a link between our mood or emotions and how we breathe - when we're anxious or stressed, breathing often becomes short and tight. By deliberately breathing slowly into our lower bodies, we can reduce anxiety and calm stress.

This breathing method is sooo calming for me. Sometimes it may take me awhile to breathe this deeply and other times it seems natural. Thanks for your gentle guidance 🙏

I felt that belly breathing really brought my attention back to the present moment and helped me slow down and calm down.

Deep Belly Breathing
I was tired this morning when I started this practice. As I was guided through the breathing, I realized that my breath was short and shallow and up in my shoulders. Thank you for helping my day start on a better note.

Just breathe
Take a moment to yourself, lay down, place your hands in your stomach and, with each deep breath you take, feel the rise of it; and when exhaling, feel your stomach being lowered. With each breath you take, you clear your head of unwanted and even unnecessary thoughts. So, just breathe deep, and be here.

I felt very calm and it started to give me sleep
I learned that you should take sometime to breath and feel how your belly rises and falls, normally we don't breath like that and we inhale not many air to fill our lungs
