If you’ve stumbled upon this post, take a moment to stop what you’re doing and take a deep breath…
All the way in and all the way out. 🌬️
Do you feel like you can breathe all the way in? Or do you feel like you’ve been holding your breath?
Holding your breath or having shallow breathing can be a symptom of stress and/or holding onto our emotions and feelings.
Remembering to stop and tune into how you’re breathing throughout the day is not only a great stress relief and technique for finding calm, but it can also point you to how you’re actually feeling in any given moment. Increasing your awareness is key.
The lungs are connected to the emotions of: grief, sadness, anxiety, stress, detachment, loss.
Foods that support the lungs:
Dark leafy greens, fatty fish, peppers, tomatoes, olive oil, oysters, blueberries, pumpkin, flax, walnuts, organic coffee,
Sounds simple, but remembering to breathe throughout the day can be life changing. Finding safe ways to practice can include yoga, breathwork and other forms of exercise.
The key is to become an explorer of your own body and emotions, and let the magic unfold. ✨
