Just a little #WellnessWednesday reminder that sometimes you just need to breathe. Take a deep breath in, and then let it go slowly, exhaling all of those negative thoughts and negative energy.
I typically practice my deep breathing while I am doing yoga first thing in the morning, and it helps set the tone for the day. But it can be done easily anytime throughout the day:
- At home or work
- Driving (or sitting) in traffic
- At the doctor’s office
- Before bed
There are many benefits to deep breathing, including:
- Natural pain reliever
- Improves blood flow and energy level
- Detoxifies the body
- Reduces inflammation
- Relaxes your mind and body
Who couldn’t use a little less stress and a little more relaxation in their day?
I hope you can find a few minutes to practice some deep breathing to help you let go of the stress, and enjoy a little peace in your day.
