It might be the most wonderful time of the year, but the holidays can also be stressful. You might find all the good cheer easily takes a turn for the worse, and before you know it, you might be overwhelmed.
The tension can increase because of breathing – when we’re anxious, we often take rapid, shallow breaths directly from the chest. If you need help getting through the holiday season, try using one of these three breathing techniques!
A three-part breath is a form of breathing that comes to us from yoga. It’s a way of uniting the breath, body, and mind to help us forget the past and future and keep us in the present moment and ground our bodies.
Of all the yoga breathing techniques, the three-part breath is one of the easiest to do, yet it is also the most helpful. Beginners, advanced practitioners, and even those who have never touched a yoga mat can benefit from this technique!
