Dealing with stress

Balance your daily consumption of life force

Sit in any comfortable meditative posture with a straight spine, chin in, chest lifted. Close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing. * Inhale through the nose in eight equal strokes. * Exhale through the nose in one, deep, powerful stroke. Follow this breath pattern in a smooth rhythm for 3-11 minutes.

To finish: inhale deeply, hold the breath 5-10 seconds and exhale. Inhale deeply, hold the breath 15-20 seconds and roll your shoulders. Exhale powerfully. Inhale deeply, hold the breath 15-20 seconds and this time roll your shoulders as fast as you can. Exhale and relax.

This MBE  will make you focus on and count your breaths and thereby force you to relate to your breathing. The best procedure is that you practice this exercise every evening. Eleven minutes a day of Eight Stroke Breathing can give you enough energy to balance your daily consumption of energy and relieve you of stress.
