To help the energy to rise, especially after the winter sleep in Springtime, I suggest you this special method of breathing in your belly.
Lie down or sit with your spine straight. Then place one hand on your lower belly, just underneath the navel. You can put the other on your chest or also on your belly.
Breathe in deeply and feel how the belly fills up and lifts your hand. If this is not happening and actually just your chest is inflating, then practice for a while to have your hand come up and down on your belly while breathing.
Once this kind of breathing has become automatic, you can now count while you breathe in and then you breathe out exactly the same count (not longer). For example: Breathing in 1-2-3-4-5-6 and then breathing out 1-2-3-4-5-6.
This kind of breathing is energising and helps you to get out of your head into your body… the mind is so used to run and run and that’s real tiring 🙂 So this is really great to get back into your energy and into your body consciousness!
Do this kind of breathing for a few minutes (5 – 15), preferably in the morning or any time you want an energy boost.
