It is the second week of Mindful March! This month, I have been teaching mindfulness and breathing techniques on how to relax the mind and body. We will continue the mindfulness theme until April.
This week's challenge is to start a mindful practice or breathing activities each day for 3-5minutes! You can do this by focusing on taking deep breaths. For example, imagine that your body is like a balloon filling up as you breathe in, and emptying as you breathe out. Let your ribs expand out to the sides, like a balloon, expanding and then let the air out, like a balloon that is emptying. The balloon expands and then the air goes out. I like to count to 4 as I do this activity. Then, I count to 4 as the air goes out. Try the strategies below to help prevent worrying!!
