Let’s take a moment to breathe.
Sounds simple, right?
But when our thoughts are working overtime it can be really easy to forget this simple thing. We might hold our breath unintentionally or carry extra tension in our backs and shoulders.
Today, right now, pause and gather your little ones. Sit in a comfortable position, in a chair or cross legged on the floor.
Rest your hands comfortably with your palms open and your eyes closed.
Breathe in slowly through your nose for a count of 8.
Hold that breath for a count of 6.
Now blow out through your mouth for a count of 7.
Repeat this pattern of breathing a few more times.
This is a great way to take a quiet moment or to start and end your day.
