According to your answers, your stress isn’t too bad, and you can handle what is currently happening on your own, so your breathing exercise will be easy and simple. Block one nostril, take a breath through the opposite nostril for 5-7 seconds, block the other nostril, and release the inhalation through the first closed nostril for 5-7 seconds. Do this for 2 minutes, then switch nostril roles and perform the exercise for another 2 minutes. The stress will soon dissipate.

According to your answers, you seem to be floating on air, and you can’t find your grounding to walk in the direction you’d like. To change this feeling all you have to do is lie on your back, and start breathing deeply while you scan your body from head to toe. Release each muscle in turn, according to your breathing rate, and repeat it up to 3 times a day to reset your thoughts and retake control of your life.

From your answers, you seem to be a bit tired and stressed at the same time, so we recommend the following breathing exercise: sit up tall and breathe in and out through your nose, pulling your abdomen in with each exhale. When inhaling push out your abdomen. Shorten each breath and pick up the pace, making sure your breathing is loud and quick. Make sure your breaths are equal in strength and length. Do it for 1-3 minutes.
