Day 1 – 3 x 3 breaths

Have a seat somewhere quiet and comfortable. If you can, sit up with your back straight and imagine a string from the top of your head that is gently pulling you up. You can close your eyes or look slightly down with your eyes halfway closed, whatever feels comfortable for you.

Take a slow deep breath through your nose, pause for 3-7 seconds then slowly breathe out through your mouth. Can you see your chest or tummy rising? Try to breathe like this three times in a row. Can you take these three deep breaths in the morning, afternoon and evening? Try to do that every day this week.

If you need help, sit down in a quiet place while someone reads this to you (don’t read out loud what is in the brackets):

  1. Sit down in a comfortable position with your back straight up. (Pause)
  2. Slowly take a deep breath in through your nose. (Pause or take a deep breath with them)
  3. Hold your breath. (Pause for three seconds)
  4. Now slowly breathe out through your mouth. (Pause or breathe out with them)
  5. Hold your breath. (Pause for three seconds)
  6. Repeat two more times.
