Long Breath Technique for Daily Stress Management

Stress is the emotional and physical strain caused by our response to pressure from the outside world.
And even though certain levels of stress are normal and healthy, the continuous high levels of stress we experience in our society can be harmful and affect our social and private lives.

So if you are a Hypnotherapist looking for a simple technique you can use, or a reader looking for a simple technique you can do on yourself, this is for you.

Imagine inhaling through your fingertips, up the arms into the shoulders, and then exhaling down the trunk into the abdomen and legs, and leisurely out at the toes. Repeat, and feel how this slow, deep breathing affects your whole body.

Note: make sure that when doing this type of breathing, you do not move your shoulders.
