Practice Soft-belly breathing with your children, students, family members, or friends. It is an excellent activity that provides a profoundly relaxing effect.
Step 1. Put your hand on your belly and allow your abdomen to relax.
Step 2. Close your eyes or soften your focus and look at the floor a few feet in front of you.
Step 3. Inhale through your nose (feel the air coming through your nose and pay attention to your breath) and exhale through your mouth.
Step 4. Breathe deeply into your abdomen and feel it expand as you count to 5. If you have your hand on your belly, you can see it rising.
Step 5. Pause for a count of 1.
Step 6. Exhale slowly to a count of 5 (your belly goes down when you exhale), allowing your body to relax and release tension.
Step 7. Repeat for five breaths or until you feel relaxed.
