-once you complete the inhales, release the breath through one, steady exhale through your nose
continue this breathwork for anywhere from 3-11 minutes.
again, the timing may be something you need to work up to. take your time and do what works best for you! if at any point it feels uncomfortable, return to breathing normally.
-once you complete the breathwork, take a long inhale through your nose and hold for 15 seconds. Then release for one long exhale.
Take another long inhale and hold for 15-20 seconds. While you're holding your breath in, roll your shoulders forward. Exhale and stop the shoulder rolls.
Finish this meditation off by taking one last long inhale and hold for 15-20 seconds. As you hold, shake and roll your shoulders to loosen any tightness or stress. Then stop the shoulder rolls and exhale.
practice this meditation the next time you're stressed! Or even better, practice once or twice a day to keep the anxiety away.
