Learning how to breathe is an important way to stay calm and centered. As you learn this breathing technique, you will gain more focus and be able to bring your attention to your breathing in times of need instead of allowing your mind to run rampid with thoughts that cause you to lose control of your emotions.
In this meditation you can sit or lie down just make sure you are comfortable and your head is supported.
Place your hand gently on your abdomen right below your rib cage.
Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose and push the air into the bottom of your lungs into the deepest part of your belly. Your chest should only move slightly as you bring the air into your stomach. Your stomach should rise fully pushing your hand up.
Once you have inhaled fully, pause for a few moments and then exhale fully through your nose or your month whichever is more comfortable. As you exhale, allow your whole body to relax and go limp.
Now you are ready to do this abdominal breathing meditation, practice this breathing technique, for 10 full breaths, Count to four on the in breath and then count to four at the pause and then count to four again on the out breath. By using this counting technique it will help you say in tune with the rhythm of abdominal breathing.
Once the counting is done I would like you to stay in this relaxed state and allow yourself to breath normally for another 10 minutes allowing yourself to be relaxed and still keeping your attention focused on your breath.
This very common and simple abdominal breathing exercise will enhance a calm mind and bring a sense of well-being into your space.
