Breath Awareness, 4, 7, 8 Count Technique
Repeat (2nd time)
Repeat (3rd time)
Repeat (4th time)
Repeat (5th time)
On your next exhale, letting go of the count and bringing your attention and awareness solely to your breathing,
Inhaling through the nose, exhaling through the nose.
Tuning into your body and noticing how you feel in this moment.
And when you are ready you can bring your awareness back into your body, wiggling your fingers and wiggling your toes. Resting a soft smile on your lips and gratitude in your heart. When you are ready you can open your eyes and fully come back to the present moment.
Remember, you can watch the videos as many times as you like to get the rhythm and pacing of each exercise for leading others through the counts.
Slow and steady, calm, and consistent. Too fast and they can’t keep up which will stress out the body, too slow and they will run out of breath. You want to find a flow and pace accordingly.
Remember it is not a count holding for a second, it’s a rhythmic count that is shorter than a second count.
You will improve with practice. Record yourself once you become comfortable with the exercise and listen to it yourself going through the practice to your voice. This will help you improve your pace and tone.
