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.
It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.
Be Patient. Be Consistent. Be Determined.

Our body can stand almost anything. It is our mind that we have to convince.
To integrate our body with our mind when we’re confronted with the “too many people, too little time, too much to do” syndrome of everyday life – is tad bit too much. 😒
However, it is very important for the body and mind to be in sync in order to fully experience clarity of mind and radiant health.
i.e. Our body’s health can get positively or negatively affected by our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes – the choice is ours !! 😃
A perfect combination of Yoga and Meditation helps clear out any form of resistance and helps calm down. 🧘🏻♂️
Just 10-15 minutes anytime-anywhere works for me.
