For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Directions: To be done 3x daily {or as needed} for the purposes of alleviating anger, fear or the general frustration with the Jackassery-at-large.*

Place your hands {one on each side} on your lower back.

1. Slowly inhale while feeling your lowest ribs gently expand into your hands.

Slowly exhale while feeling your lowest ribs gently retreat from your hands.

2. Slowly inhale, feeling your lowest ribs expanding further into your hands and your belly expanding as well.

Slowly exhale, feeling your lowest ribs gently retreat from your hands, pulling in closer towards your waist, facilitating the complete expulsion of carbon dioxide from your lungs.

3. Slowly inhale, feeling your lowest ribs gently expand into your hands and visualize golden rays of light emanating between your ribs, warming your lower back and hands.

Slowly exhale, feeling your lowest ribs gently retreat from your hands while the warmth of the light remains.

Allow your arms to rest at your sides or in your lap.

Notice your relaxed back. Notice your deepened breath. Notice your quiet mind.

Peace.
