Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
Deep breathing exercises are simple yet highly effective stress busters. When you're feeling overwhelmed, take a moment to focus on your breath. Inhale deeply through your nose, hold for a few seconds, and exhale slowly through your mouth. This technique helps activate your body's relaxation response and can instantly calm your mind.
Remember, with every inhale and exhale, you are breathing in and out the very breath of God.
Set a timer for 15 minutes. Breathe deeply. The way to breathe deeply is to count to 10 as you inhale and count to 10 as you exhale. Breathe slow and deep, and experience the very breath of God flowing in and out of you.
Take some time to journal your experience of practicing deep breathing.
