breathing...the right way...

inhale*2*3*4, hold*2*3*4, exhale*2*3*4, hold*2*3*4 and repeat (over and over and over again)
Never would have dreamed that I did not breath "properly". Doc said that eventually I will get to inhale*2*3*4*5*6*7*8*9*10, exhale*2*3*4*5*6*7*8*9*10. It is hard enough to do the four count, but I am conscious of it and that really helps!
Enjoying the sunshine. Praising God that Stellan and his mom are headed home!

Is this always? Or just when exercising?

I only remember to do deep breathing when I wake up at 3am with anxiety.

This is always. It is hard work, but when I do it I feel much better (a calmer mama too).

Gosh, if I breathe like that all the time I might forget to do anything else. Like blink or swallow not to mention grocery shopping or meal prep.

I'll give it a try though, it'll be my week's assignment.
