Mindful Breathing Technique
Bringing your attention to your breath can be very beneficial. We generally do not notice that our experience of stress is related to how we are breathing. The mindful breathing pattern of inhaling for five seconds and exhaling for five seconds uses the diaphragm and results in a 10 second respiration cycle or 6 breaths per minute. This breathing pattern maximizes the release of peaceful bio-chemicals in your body, lowers adrenaline and cortisol. Practice this five minute technique at least once per day and develop greater mindful awareness. RUNTIME: 5 Minutes_________________________________________________________________________________
Bring your stress to the ocean and walk along the shore. Release loss, regrets, and disappointments while breathing in the cool refreshing scent of the sea. Renew your spirit. RUNTIME 10:30 minutes

We are often fatigued by the concerns of our daily lives. When we feel burdened by the weight of our concerns and worries we may feel sad and turn to unhealthy ways of relieving those heavy feelings. What we really need is a moment of renewal – in which our bodyminds can set aside fear and worry while gaining access to the “river of energy” that flows within us. Try this at least once per day if life is “getting you down..” RUNTIME: 23:00
The Tea Break Meditation
Take a ten minute relaxation break. Make yourself a cup of tea, sit down and listen to this meditation as you drink your tea, mindfully. Mindfulness is the readiness and willingness to be present, right now. How often do you drink tea or coffee while reading a newspaper or book, or even while chatting on the phone? Our Observer Minds are lulled into complacency. Why not devote a ten minute “Tea Break” to a mindfulness practice? RUNTIME 10 Minutes
Heart to Heart Synergy
This is a very powerful imagery exercise which trains you to center focused awareness in your heart. Too often our wounded hearts beat too quickly as if to shield us from re-membered hurts that are in our past. Our hearts are capable of generating many different rhythms and resonate quickly to a slower, nurturing beat when imagining a loved one. Try this for about three sessions.
I just wanted to add a Quote.
