Today I am going to guide you through a short mindfulness breathing exercise. I take time each day to stop and pause to focus on my breath. This reminds us to be in the present moment and to experience the now. Mindfulness breathing meditation encourages positivity both physically and mentally.
Breathing is something that we all do and this meditation exercise can be done almost anywhere. By intentionally focusing on our breath, we ground ourselves in that moment.
I started out with about 3-5 minutes a day and have gradually worked my way up to 20-40 minutes a day. Focus on your breath from your belly, chest or nose. Really notice and engage with your breath while you observe yourself. If you happen to drift off into thoughts, gently bring your attention back to the breath.
I hope you enjoy this exercise and please let me know your thoughts at the end.
