Replenish your energy with breathing.
Breathing can be a gateway into our nervous system.
Our nervous system is made up of:
Exercise 2: 1:2 Breathing. Breathing is slow and mindful. Notice how many seconds you inhale. On your exhale, breathe out 2 times longer than exhale. Example: if you breathe in 3 seconds, let your exhale be 6 seconds.
Exercise 3: Wim Hof Breathing. This is a breath exercise followed by holding the breath after the exhale. With this exercise you learn how to hold your breath longer, and to make conscious contact with your heart, autonomic nervous system and immune system! This technique is characterized by cycles consisting of a few minutes of breathing in and out continuously (30-40 times until you feel like you are saturated with oxygen. You might feel light headed or dizzy. Just remember that you have control) followed by the retention (breath holding) after the last exhale. Time how long you can hold your breath. When you can’t hold any longer and you are ready to take in a breath, breathe in and hold the inhale for 10 seconds and then let go. You have just completed one cycle. Repeat for 3 cycles.
