The Power of Mindful Breathing

De-stress with home-based breathing exercises

To find your inner Zen you don’t need to travel to a remote mountain top. Just turn on your air conditioner in your living room and breathe your way to mental clarity. Here’s how you can get there.

Pursed lip breathing

This simple technique is designed to slow down the pace of your breathing; to make it more intentional and efficient. It is a powerful tool that relaxes the body and mind to help you manage stress and anxiety, in any situation.

How to do it:
- Relax your neck and keep your shoulders down.
- With your mouth closed, breathe in slowly through your nose for 2-4 seconds.
- Pucker your lips like you are going to whistle.
- Breathe out slowly to a count of 4.

Diaphragmatic breathing

Diaphragmatic breathing strengthens your diaphragm which is an important muscle for deep breathing. It also reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and makes a real difference to your wellbeing - both physically and mentally.

How to do it:
- Sit or lie flat on your back.
- Relax your shoulders.
- Put one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen.
- Inhale through your nose and count to two.
- Purse your lips, press gently on your stomach, and exhale slowly for about two seconds.
- Repeat three to five times.

The comfort of breathing

When you feel anxious, your breathing becomes faster and more shallow. To fully inflate your lungs, you need to be in an environment where your body is at ease, at the perfect self-soothing temperature. Wind-Free technology gives you a cool indoor climate without the discomfort of direct cold airflow.
