The Box Breath
Brought to You by Creative Healing for Youth in Pain
Sit up tall, close your eyes and go inside.
Start by blowing out the stale air through your mouth.
Through your nose, breathe in for a count of 4, then hold in for a count of 4.
Breathe out for a count of 4, then hold out for a count of 4.
Drop your shoulders as you exhale. Repeat 5-7 times.
Do a comfortable count (about 1/second); use same speed of count for all phases of this “square” breath.
Open your eyes and notice how you feel.
