These 4 minutes will help you get into the moment and be calm and centered, whatever your busy day brings!
Good morning, everybody. I thought I would just jump on here and do a quick breath meditation to help you get grounded and calm. Okay. So whether you are standing or walking or sitting, start by feeling your feet. Just notice your feet, making contact with the floor. Notice the places where your feet and the floor connect, and also notice the spaces where your feet don’t connect like in the arches of your feet or between your toes.
Take a nice, slow breath and through your nose, and out through your mouth, Let’s get those shoulders up, push them back, gently slide them down. Like you’re slipping your shoulders in your back pockets.
What we’re going to do today is we’re going to take a nice belly breath, otherwise known as diaphragmatic breathing. So put your hands on your belly and as you breathe in take a nice deep breath and, and let your belly expand. And then as you breathe out, let your belly come in. Okay. So let’s do that together. Ready?
Take a nice deep breath in, watch your belly come out and then a nice long exhale. Go ahead and take a few more of those breaths. And while you do that, I want you to imagine what’s happening inside your body.
As you breathe in, air is entering your lungs. And oxygen is diffusing into your bloodstream. Deep breath pumps lymph fluid throughout your body, which contains powerful immune cells to fight infection. Your breath is allowing your body to exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide. Oxygen is entering your cells and giving energy to every single cell in your body.
Nice, deep breath slows your heartbeat, lowers your blood pressure, reduces stress and helps you get grounded in the moment. Feel more calm, more centered, and more focused.
So now we’re going to breathe together with a nice long exhale. So I want you to breathe in with me on a count of five and breathe out with me on a count of seven, ready? And we’re going to read them through our nose and out through our mouth and keep that belly breath going.
Breathe in: two, three, four, five out two, three, four, five, six, seven. One more time. Breathe in: two, three, four, five out: two, three, four, five, six, seven.
And that’s it. So as you go throughout your day to day, remember to breathe, think about all the amazing things that are happening inside your body with each breath.
