10 Healthy Lifestyle Habits

Ninth Lifestyle Habit

Throughout the day, our breathing often becomes very shallow, and especially if we are feeling stress build up. That is why it’s important to take a step back several times a day to be mindful of how we are breathing.

 

Try this: Every hour or two, practice breathing in slowly and deeply through your nose for 4-5 counts, hold for 4 counts, and then slowly exhale all the air as if blowing though a straw. Wait a couple seconds, then do it again. Repeat several times.

 

**Its important that you breathe through your diaphragm though, so don’t allow your shoulders to rise; be watching or feeling your belly rise up and down. If necessary, lay down to do this exercise at first, since we always do this when we are laying down, but most of us need to train ourselves to do that when we are sitting upright or standing. 😉#healthyhabitsforlife
