Breathing Challenge: Day 2

Welcome to Day 2: Breathing to calm down and center

Today we use a breathing pattern to help us calm down and center after we may have gotten triggered. Take a few minutes of space where you are not disturbed, just to be by yourself (even if other people are in the room, just turn inward). Breathe in for a count of 3, hold your breath for a moment, breathe out for a count of 6. Repeat for a few minutes.

The idea is to practice this when you are not or only a little triggered, so it is a well-practiced and readily available tool when you really need it.

Let me know how it went.
