Challenge Seven: Breathing

This week, I challenge you to breathe. Think it’s easy? Try this every day:

Sit in a comfortable position. Inhale for a count of four and then exhale for a count of four. When you are ready, start increasing the number of seconds–inhale for five, exhale for five; inhale for six, exhale for six; etc. See how high you can get increasing one second at a time. Can you get to ten seconds by the end of the week? Can you get higher?

You really have to slow down your breath. Practice everyday for two to five minutes.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
