Equal Breathing Exercise

Equal Breathing (Great for Racing & Out of Control Thoughts)

Equal breathing helps you to relax, focus, and be present. 

Feel free to make the count higher to lengthen your breathing. Just make sure that the inhales & exhales are an even count. 

Practice

1. Lengthen the spine, relax the shoulders, bring the eyes to a close or low gaze, and exhale completely through your mouth. 

2. Allow the lips to gently touch as you inhale quietly through your nose for a mental count of 4.

3. Exhale slowly through the nose for a count of 4.

4. Repeat the cycle, until you feel relaxed.
