A Two Breath Break

  • Sit with both feet on the floor.  
  • Lengthen your spine up. 
  • Drop your shoulders down and move them slightly back as you lift and open your chest.   
  • Close your eyes (after reading through these instructions).  
  • Bring your awareness to your breath. 
  • Notice when the inhalation begins.  Observe the air moving through your nostrils.  Observe your ribcage expanding as you inhale. 
  • Notice when the inhalation turns into the exhalation.  Observe your body as the air releases. 
  • Notice when the exhalation turns into the inhalation and follow the cycle again. 

Tip:  If your mind wanders, simply bring your awareness back to your breath.
