Sometimes I feel tense, like an over-filled tire about to pop. Can you relate? This technique helps to release some of this tension and pressure, and it reminds me to SLOW DOWN.

Practice for 2 to 5 minutes, or continuously anytime you notice pressure building up. (I often do this practice while cooking, walking, driving, etc. to settle internal busyness.)

*Practice 3-5 rounds. It’s completely normal to feel a bit dizzy or lightheaded as you’re getting lots of fresh oxygen to your brain, but if this becomes too much, release the technique and continue with long slow deep breaths.
