Counted Breathing

Counted breathing is a simple and effective breathing technique that can help you relax, reduce stress, and improve your overall well-being. This technique involves inhaling for a count of four, holding your breath for a count of two, and exhaling for a count of six. Counted breathing is a form of deep breathing, which involves taking slow, deep breaths that fully expand your lungs and diaphragm.

To practice counted breathing, find a quiet and comfortable place to sit or lie down. You may also choose to play some calming music or use aromatherapy to enhance your relaxation experience.

Once you’re in a comfortable position, begin by taking a deep breath in through your nose for a count of four. Allow your chest and belly to expand fully as you inhale. Hold your breath for a count of two, then slowly exhale through your mouth for a count of six. As you exhale, release any tension in your body and let go of any thoughts or worries.

Repeat this pattern of inhaling for a count of four, holding for a count of two, and exhaling for a count of six for several minutes. You may choose to close your eyes and focus your attention on your breath, or you can visualize a calming scene or word.
