    Has me so relaxed that I dont feel like looking at the rest of my emails, thats a good thing!

  • Liz Longacre says:

    Just did it Heather, I totally need this. I often get short of breath when I’m really stressed out and have to yawn a lot to catch my breath. This is an exercise I should definitely use!

    Feeling relaxed and a bit lightheaded. My wife has a smaller lung capacity and can only hold for 5 seconds but she is feeling very relaxed too. Thanks for the tip.

  • Laurie says:

    I am SO glad that you posted this – it was amazing when you did it with our BNI group and I’d hoped you might share it on your website someday. It is great to know that I can literally “find you” when I need someone to tell me to relax and BREATHE!
    Well done my friend!
    P.S. I’m forwarding this to my Facebook to share with my friends too – they have heard me say “inhale pink, exhale blue” for years!

      Thanks Laurie! Love the idea of visualizing your breath as different colors – especially visualizing them going straight to an area that feels tight or sore. Ever tried that?

  • Betsy says:

    Just got back from vacation and so glad I saw this e-mail before I started reading the other 94 in my in-box!
    Keep the tips coming

    I almost fell asleep at my desk… thanks for the trick, I am going to start doing this every night before bedtime 🙂

  • Phil says:

    Ha! I’ve been doing this breathe in for X seconds, breath out for 2*X seconds to relax/meditate before going to bed for years. Love it.

  • Sarah G says:

    I just discovered you, Heather, and you’re a bad ass. This video is really cool. I’m thinking I can use this exercise when I get home from school bc that’s when I tend to want to rip into lots of food. I can also use the tranquilizer during the day when I feel overwhelmed by schoolwork/academic commitments. Also, I can use this right before I go to bed, instead of just shutting off my laptop and trying to sleep. Thanks!

    • Heather says:

      Happy to have you here Sarah! Glad you enjoyed the video and found so many great uses for it. It’s pretty cool as it can help you fall asleep if you need it but it can also help get you focused. Enjoy!
