The Rescue Breath Ritual

It only takes around a minute – but the benefits are huge! Smiling breathing Is the first and instant defense against stress. It restores the para-sympathetic nervous system, calms the mind, calms the heart rate, deeply oxygenates the blood and overrides any emotional negativity.

1

Expel

First, expel stale air by breathing in through the nose and purposefully out through the mouth 3 times. This is to clear stagnant breath and Qi and carbon dioxide that accumulates during shallow breathing and stressful periods.

2

Descend

Then take five deep breaths, inhale for five counts and then exhale for five.

Allow mental energy to descend.
