Relaxation Exercise

5 minute relaxation breathing exercise. Great for help falling asleep.

This exercise utilizes a 4-6 breathing pattern. We will inhale for 4 seconds and exhale for 6 seconds with no pause in between.

If you can, practice this exercise laying on your back with your head propped on a pillow.

Remember, we recommend breathing inhaling and exhaling through the nose while completing all these exercises.

If you can’t breathe through your nose, that’s ok, you will still benefit from breathing through your mouth.

Focus on proper form, feeling your belly expand and contract with each breath. Try and find a nice smooth rhythm to your breaths, feel it out; never force!

Relaxation breathing is perfect for when you are experiencing stress, anxiety, or difficulty sleeping. It’s also a great way to ground you and help you feel more present.
