Welcome to Week 3

This is a pivotal week. 

Your body, mind, energy, and habits have all been shaken and awakened.

Keep pushing yourself out of your comfort zone to get yourself where you really want to be. 

Let's do it!

Thank you for completing the Week 2 Reflections. 

I look forward to sharing your insights anonymously with our group.

Look for an email from me on Tuesday with this info. 

LIFESTYLE THEME

Breathing

 

This week's theme is breathing.

Every single system in your body relies on oxygen.

Proper breathing can aid in stress management, cognitive function, better sleep, better movement, and increased overall mindbody functioning.

 

Reach out to me, if you're interested in learning more pranayama (controlled breathing techniques).  I have many!

This week, level-up your breathing habits by committing to one of these tips, or trying a new one each day.

The Tips:

1.  Before eating a meal, take 1              super slow deep breath

2. Upon waking up, take 5 deep            breaths with a longer inhale and      hold at the top for 5 seconds

3. Before bed, take 5 deep breaths      with a longer exhale and hold at      the bottom for 5 seconds 

4. When feeling stress, anxiety, or        overwhelm take 5 deep breaths         with equal length inhale and             exhale 

5. When feeling unmotivated or            low energy practice Breath of          Fire for 1 minute
