Belly Breathing by Julie Shullo

Try belly breathing…

  1. Close your eyes and imagine your stomach as a balloon. You can put your hands on your stomach if you’d like.
  2. Take a slow, deep breath in for 3 counts and envision the balloon expanding (push-out your stomach) as your lungs fill with air.
  3. Hold for 3 counts.


4. Slowly release your breath for 3 counts and picture the balloon slowly deflating.

5.Repeat until you feel relaxed and calm.


Research has shown that regularly practicing meditation, mindfulness, and/or breathing strategies reduces a person’s stress levels and anxiety, while improving attention and focus.
