Building Self Awareness | Focus on Breathing

Breathing helps to ground you and pulls you deeper into your inner self.

  • Focus your breathing by bringing your awareness to it.
  • Follow it as you inhale and exhale.
  • Feel the rise of your chest as it fills you right up.
  • Follow the breath all the way to your belly and out again.
  • Repeat for as long as you feel necessary.

Breath work can be done anytime or anywhere, & it’s a very simple way to connect with yourself throughout the day.
