Practice this technique correctly for just 5 to 10 minutes a day, and you will lower your levels of stress exponentially.
Here is the technique, and this is just one of several variations. However, this is the simplest and most effective of them all.
And it is just about becoming aware of your breath.
It is basically about becoming aware of the natural rhythm of your breath and then engaging your mind with a continuous or cyclical task.
Become aware of the natural rhythm of your breath. Observe the inhale and observe the exhale. And do your best not to control the flow of your breath. You don’t want to control the natural flow. Even if it’s shallow right now, begin to notice the natural rhythm of your breath. And while you are breathing, start to count from 1 to 4, and then as you pause and begin to exhale, continue counting from 5 to 10.
Breathing in 1, 2, 3, 4, pause and out 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and pause, and repeat.
The secret is to focus on counting while allowing the natural rhythm of the breath to continue. All you need to do is focus on the counting and allow the breath to flow as it will, so you’re not controlling the breath, but your focus.
By counting and by focusing on the numbers, you can even go as far as visualising the numbers.
Now, if you think about the speed at which you are counting, this is the part where you will want to learn to control and experiment with. Speed up your counting if you feel your breath is going to be short, and slow down if you feel like you have got enough breath. The control initially is about the speed at which you count.
So, if you’re breathing quickly, then you must count to four quite quickly and if you exhale at a fast pace, then you must count from 5 to 10 quite quickly. Don’t worry about the speed of the natural rhythm of your breath. It will change with time as you become more relaxed. Just focus on mentally getting in line with that speed, by counting as fast or as slow as you need to, in time with the natural rhythm of your breath.
That’s breathing in for the count of four, and exhaling continuing up to 10.
Inhale 1,2, 3, 4, pause, and exhale 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, pause. And repeat.
Practice this for 10 minutes a day and you will notice amazing results.
