Relax and Recharge with Deep Breathing
Health Tip of the Day
"Getting Fit. . . One Step at a Time"
According to Dr. Andrew Weil relax and recharge with deep breathing. Place the tip of your tongue just behind your upper front teeth (keep it there throughout the exercise). Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whooshing sound. Inhale quietly through your nose while you count to four. Hold your breath for seven counts, then exhale through your mouth (making the whoosh sound again) for a count of eight.
Repeat the cycle four times.
