We are often stressed, so much so we do not realize it even anymore. Did you forget the word “relaxation” ?
I remember the day when I had my driving test, the examiner told me “stop, stop the car, and breathe!” I was so stressed, as I forgot to breathe, I was almost in apnea, bringing to my body only the necessary to survive instead of living.
I took a big inspiration, and everything freed, I felt lighter, less contracted, and … less stressed!
Since I use a technique when I am in a whim and I do not manage to make serenity and peace come in me, I use it especially in the evening before sleeping, but it can be made at any time of the day.
I inspire by making the abdominal breath, place your hands one on the stomach, the other one on the breast, only the one of the stomach has to have a movement, the one of the breast has to be motionless. (At the beginning it is a little bit difficult, but with training, you can do it !) I inspire by the nose, until my stomach cannot receive the slightest quantity of air, then I block my breath 5 seconds, then I slacken slowly (it is important to go slowly!) all my air, by the mouth, until i had no air at all.
I begin again, I inspire slowly by inflating my stomach, by the nose, I block 5 seconds, and I expire by the mouth quite slowly.
I make it until i feel better.
If you are already an expert in breath, you can add visualization, on the inspiration I visualize the prana (https: //www.facebook.com/
In the next inspiration, it is more the prana which I shall take, but love which stands out from the earth.
This technique seems simple, but it is very efficient. Generally, in 5/7 cycles “inspiration / expiration”, you will feel better!
go on now !.
