Challenge yourself with this box breathing exercise!
Before you begin,
sit up in your chair with your shoulders back and relaxed. Be sure not to operate a vehicle or anything where you can put others in danger.
During or after the exercise, if you feel sweating or tingling in your hands and feet, that’s okay. It’s your body oxygenating itself through breathing.
