Systematic breathing practice for 3 to 5 minutes
When sit for long hours and work, your mind will be focused on many issues and you will be hardly breathing. There is bound to be less oxygen in your cells. Please sit back and practice deep breathing for few minutes. Sit straight, close your eyes and breathe smoothly and steadily few times. Make sure you lock your mind with your breath and don’t tense any part of your body. Keep a count of your inhalations and exhalations and gradually increase the length and volume. As you proceed, make your exhalations much longer than your inhalations.

Exhalation is a natural process of cleaning up the body and mind. Soft, smooth, steady and long exhalations develop easy adjustments and improve abilities.

Negative energies are changed to positive energies and the quality of your life improves.
