Deep Breath and Relax...

  1. Close your eyes if they're open.
  2. Take a few big, deep breaths.
  3. Breathe in. ...
  4. Breathe out. ...
  5. Now use a word or phrase with your breath. ...
  6. As you breathe out, say in your mind, "I breathe out stress and tension."

● See the relevance and necessity for mindfulness (in its varied expressions), particularly as it relates to reducing stress and taking care of one’s self
● Through mindfulness practice, and integrating practices from the “Tree of contemplative practices”, learn to foster calm, better concentration, and more openness.
