Patient and Still
I have been practicing proper breathing. I'm really enjoying it.
What I've been doing is inhaling deeply and fully through the abdomen first, allowing it to rise to its fullest, then fully through the chest, rising to its fullest. Then exhaling completely through the chest first, lowering to its emptiest, and then abdomen, lowering to its emptiest. I've found that it brings me into a deep state of inner awareness, and it brings me to a very peaceful meditative state while focusing on counting the full breaths I take.
It forces you to be patient and still.
