1. Breathe deeply.
A long inhale and a slow gentle exhale. Make it a full belly, satisfyingly long breath. Do it three more times if you don’t feel better after the first one. Focus on the expansion of your rib cage and lungs as you breathe in, feel the constriction as you slowly breathe out. Notice the air passing through your nostrils and let your busy mind pause for a few seconds.
2. Be in nature.
Go outside to take some deep breaths. Notice the trees, sky, clouds. Listen for sounds of birds, wind or water. Feel the fresh air on your skin. Bask in the glow of the sun or moon. Connect with the higher power that keeps our planet in perfect orbit.
