3 MINUTES OF BREATHING. A very basic practice to begin working with. Commitment and consistency go a long way. A regular (3-5 times per week) practice will open up doors for you that you previously did not see a way through.
SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE - HERE IS WHY: . . Breath work is nuanced, I cannot express this enough. Sure you can approach it willy nilly and try the latest fad and huff and puff, and make it look like a big deal.... but I don't advise that. Just like I don't advise that with yoga, Jiu Jitsu, strength training, nutrition, or basically any other lifestyle. Look for what has been consistent through out the ages, what has worked for years, decades, centuries. A quiet place of breath can offer you the space to slowly shift your basic habits and states of being. Aggressive breathing techniques will not find you on the other side of habit quicker. If anything, they can be traumatic and the long way around.
TAPPING IN TO WHAT YOU NEED. WTF DOES THAT MEAN?? . . What we need changes all the time. And finding out what we really need is buried under the mind chatter of our passions, fears, emotions, and social expectations. So accessing it means a some guided quiet time. Here are some things that can change for you with quiet time like this. . . 💤 😴 When you spend all day running around with out time to just sit and listen to yourself think, and then you lay down at night to go to bed and it is quiet, the noise can become unbearably loud. 5 minutes a day of breathing and thinking will help alleviate some of that pressure. . . 👭👫👬When we stop to pay attention to what we think we will begin to notice how much time we spend projecting our own thoughts onto other people. We can begin to tame this dragon and recognize where we end and where other people begin. . . 🍔WHAT GOES IN YOUR MOUTH AND COMES OUT OF IT🤮 The more aware you are of your emotions the more aware you become of how you cope with your emotions. From eating them to speaking them. . . This practice is simple and effective. It helps you to see all the clutter and chatter that is keeping you from tapping in. Now, please do not get simple confused with easy. It can be hard as hell to see our own shit and face it. And moving through the layers can be tiring. BUT you and your life are worth it. . .
Sometimes simplicity is the best course of action.
We do not need to constantly be pushing ourselves forward because it is necessary to have time to integrate. So even when you have been practicing breath work for a long time and longer ratios feel comfortable, it may not be the best course of action for you all the time.
This practice starts at a lower ratio making it great for beginners and great for seasoned practitioners that are feeling higher levels of stress.
We live in these bodies, which makes it so easy to take them for granted.
Even though this practice is designed specifically for head, neck, and jaw tension it is a great practice to use to build a relationship with your body.
By following the sensation of our body we create a sense of presence that supports us through out the rest of the day or creates a restful nights sleep.
