Basic guidelines for enacting healthy, conscious breathing:

  1. Sit with excellent posture without straining any muscles.
  2. Inhale and exhale through the nose with the mouth closed.
  3. Breathe deep and slow without forcing your inhales or exhales.
  4. Breathing should be smooth and naturally rhythmic, never erratic or choppy.
  5. Fill your lower lungs first, then mid-lungs and your upper lungs last.
  6. Touch your tongue lightly to the roof of your mouth.
  7. Allow natural pauses to happen between each inhale and exhale.
  8. Conscious breathing happens when you think “breathe in” or “breathe out.”
  9. Let go and enjoy yourself.
