The word of the week this week is GROUNDED.
Grounded is being mentally and emotionally stable; making good decisions and not saying or doing stupid things 🙂
This week, whenever you feel anxious, fear, stressed or depressed, stop what you are doing and connect to the ground.
This can be done standing as we will do in our sessions MWF with the standing breathing exercise below or in any other position.
Perform 2 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing while standing and connecting to ground.
Stand with feet shoulder width, lengthened spine with right hand on belly and left hand on chest.
Imagine there are tree roots going around the waist under the belly button with roots going down the front and back of the hips and thighs to the feet.
Connect 10 points to the ground: Imagine all 5 toes, 2 bones at ball of foot, center of arch, outer foot and heel have tree roots connected to ground with sandbags on top of feet.
Feel the strength, stability and connection to the earth.
Breathe in and out of nose for approximately 15s each breath.
Initiate breathing with belly & rib cage for 5s (expand again to get full expansion) > 5 s hold > 5 s exhale through nose.
For added bonus to change emotional state in seconds think about 3 things you are grateful for and smile because life is good!
Ground whenever and wherever!
Have a great week!
