A Mini Body Vacation

Whatever task you are doing right now, stop if you can. Put your hands on your belly at the belly button or just below it. Take a moment to check if you feel equally balanced between the left side of your body and the right. Take in a slow breath through your nose for a 4 count. Breathe that breath all the way down to your hands while your belly expands to hold that breath. When you complete your inhale your belly should be rounded out like a basketball. When you exhale to a 4 or 5 count, release the breath through your nose (or your mouth if you really need to release) while the basketball deflates.
Repeat as many times as you like as long as you don’t become dizzy for an excellent mini body vacation!
