    I kinda like this technique. It is like giving a short pause to what is bothering you and then helping to clear your mind. Or it seems that way to me.

    May take some practice…I’m finding it difficult to relax on the “holds.”

      Hi Linda, do what feels best to you and find your own rhythm. Maybe try saying an affirmation during the holds like “I am relaxed” or experiment with holding for a shorter period of time. Trust your own intuition what’s best for you. Another simple breath practice is to have your exhale be longer than your inhale, but you don’t need to hold at all. You inhale to the count of 3 and exhale to the count of 6 or so with no holding between. You can see if that works better for you. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system when the exhale is longer than the inhale, and triggers a calming response in the body. Give it a go and let us know!
