Have you ever had one of those days? Been up all night with a sick kid, another child doesn't want to go to school, the dog has thrown up on the rug, and breakfast is burnt. Frustration has started to build and build. You are ready to call it a day, and go back to bed....and it's only 9AM. Now what? You are at a cross roads. You could let your day be ruined....or....you could...try something different.
Try this breathing exercise to keep your cool as things are heating up.
It's called Sitali breath in the yoga tradition. This breath is designed to cool down the physical and emotional bodies to gain clarity, wisdom, and space. Whether it be becoming overheated from warmer outdoor temperatures, heated by frustration, anger or anxiety, or hormonal fluctuations this is a good one to keep in mind.
