Breathing, seems like something we all do. However, when you slow your breathing, breath deeply (feel you stomach expand), hold for a moment and slowly exhale; you will notice that anxiety diminishes and disappears, you feel more energised and you are able to focus more easily. What deep regular breathing also does is bring oxygen into your system and co2 out, which also helps boost your immune system.
Make it a daily ritual. Sit quietly, let your mind calm and breath. Do this as many times a day as you feel and find the right balance for your best life. Start in the morning as part of your getting ready ritual and last thing at night before your going to sleep ritual.
Walking, like breathing is something that most of us do. Whan walking is treated as a ritual, it is done with complete focus on the action of walking, neither as a means nor a motive, simply being.
Walking is helpful if you under stress, bored or happy. Clear your mind and feel the motion and breath.
