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.
