This morning, I woke up from the sound of heavy rain outside my window. There’s something so soothing and calming about raindrops knocking on the glass of a window… I laid there for over an hour, read the news, then, attempted to do some breathing exercises which were recommended to me by a physio. It’s interesting how someone working with muscles and body movement recommends breathing exercises to heal muscle-related issues. Breathe in slowly through your nose, fill your stomach with air, then, let the air move from your stomach to your chest, expanding your chest with a deep breath. When exhaling, breath out slowly through the mouth. After just 2-3 minutes of breathing this way, my head feels lighter, my body freer, my mind…clearer. It’s such a simple exercise to do for yourself – I really need to get better at prioritising these little things.
