DrPortiaFaceShotHello Everyone!!

Hope your week is going well, and your sleep and rest is improving! As we continue on this journey to be more mindful. Today, I want to share the second mindfulness exercise that was found to help improve a person’s sleep. As I stated earlier this exercise was used in a research study examining the benefits of mindfulness in improving sleep. Try it. It really does work.

Exercise #2 – Mindful Breathing

“The most basic way to do mindful breathing is simply to focus your attention on your breath, the inhale and exhale. You can do this while standing, but ideally you’ll be sitting or even lying in a comfortable position. Your eyes may be open or closed, but you may find it easier to maintain your focus if you close your eyes. It can help to set aside a designated time for this exercise, but it can also help to practice it when you’re feeling particularly stressed or anxious. Experts believe a regular practice of mindful breathing can make it easier to do it in difficult situations.” Do this exercise 15 minutes daily for at least a week.
