A weekly message to strengthen your CORE and develop your resolve.

…breath in through your nose and hold it for a count of 7.

Now, exhale slowly through your mouth for a count of 8.

Again, take a slow deep breath in through your nose, hold it for a count of 7, and exhale slowly through your mouth for a count of 8.

Your breath is your most powerful tool to help you connect with your CORE to calm, comfort, and center yourself. Working from your center allows you to manage your stress, anxiety, anger, frustration and all the eating that comes along with these emotional states.
Here is the REAL Skinny to help you check your breath. Place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. When you breathe in, the hand on your abdomen should rise higher than the one on your chest. This lets you know you are pulling air into the base of the lungs. When you exhale, gently contract your abdominal muscles to completely remove the remaining air from your lungs. Our respirations are not deepened by inhaling more air, but by completely exhaling it.
Slow and steady, in and out from the abdomen… AHHHHH, love that feeling!!
