The simplicity of breathing
I love days that start with simplicity. And I treasure the moments when I am aware that just being is enough. (I don’t have enough of them. Do you?)
Breathing is one of the human abilities that happen naturally. And when you are consciously breathing you immediately feel more alive and in your body.
So, today’s presence practice is breathing. In one particular posture that gives extra space to your lungs. And it’s super simple:
Lying down, put your hands behind your neck. This position gives extra space to the lungs in the chest. It nicely opens up your shoulders too and you don’t even have to do anything.
Close your eyes and be attentive to your breathing and how you feel the chest.
Breathing in– feel the lungs expand
Breathing out– let the air out by itself
