This breathing technique is a natural tranquilizer for the nervous system. The power of deep calm, easing the body into a state of calmness and relaxation.
1. Close your mouth and inhale through your nose for 4 seconds.
2. Hold your breath for 7 seconds while your muscles tense.
3. Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound for 8 seconds and let it all go 😀
Repeat 4-5 times or until you are calm and your heartbeat is back to normal.
This breathing technique works so well for me that it puts me into a relaxed state immediately.
I prefer doing this post my Interval runs and / or High intensity workouts.
