When we’re asleep, many of our vital functions drop, including respiratory rate, heart rate, and blood pressure. Use breath to gently wake up your body and stimulate respiratory, nervous, and cardiovascular systems. Don’t leap out of bed upon waking up, as this sudden action, can lead to undue stress.
While lying in bed, put one hand on chest, and the other on sternum . Breathe through nose into your belly, making belly hand rise by an inch or two, barely moving the hand on your sternum. Exhale out through the mouth with a relaxed sigh.Repeat this pattern 3 times.
Next, breathe through your nose, first making your belly hand rise. One second after the belly hand has started to rise, with breath coming up into your midribs, feeling them expand sideways. Exhale out through your mouth with a relaxed sigh.Repeat this pattern 3 times.
Next, repeat the belly and midribs breath, but, this time, soon after the midribs have started to expand, allow your breath to come all the way up to your collar bones. Exhale through the mouth with a relaxed sigh.
Repeat this pattern 3 times. PAK DESTINY
