Mindfulness Exercise for Peace of Mind and a Happy You

What is mindfulness Exercise?

Have you ever came across this terminology of Mindfulness Excercise? Maybe not,  Its a very simple technique you have to just connect yourself to your breath. You may ask or wonder how is that possible? The answer is very simple it just requires conscious and continuous effort from you. Yoga for Happiness, yoga for mental relaxation you must have heard all of this butthebasic difference is that many of us practice yoga and some are really good at it but we are connected for only those few minutes when we actually practice Yoga.
In the competitive world, we undergo a lot of pressure end result stress, depression, anxiety and many of us don't admit being depressed or having anxiety issues. We try to proclaim only our stress levels for some sympathy.
Maneuvering through such phases is not easy but if your motivated and ready to accept your problem things will change for positive. I myself experienced this postpartum and found out ways to sail through this sea of anxiety, stress, and depression by including some mindfulness practice in my life one of the technique was focussed breathing.

Yoga for mindfulness

Yoga is being practiced from ancient times for breathing regulation and connecting mind, body and soul. Now we have research to prove the same. As we know that our observation and key to detail are affected by being focussed which is interlinked with focussed breathing or breath regulation. So if we can regulate our breath we improve our observation and attention level.
"Pranayam helps in our ability to co-ordinate and focus and an influx of positive energy."
Focussed breathing if you practice mindfully and consciously it will help you shift your attention to the present and to the positive and will have an impact on your mood and emotions clearly in a good way.

How to practice Focussed breathing?

  1. Sit in a meditation pose and set the timer for 5 minutes you can begin with 2 minutes if you are a beginner and new to yoga and breathing techniques.
  2. Try connecting yourself to your breath where you fell short and when you feel anxious. Connect to both exhale and inhale, the best way to do it is trying to increase the period of exhaling and inhaling.
  3. Put your hand on your chest to feel your breath or you can also place on the stomach if you have a flat belly. This will help you connect.
  4. Initially, your mind will wander but it's okay, try to focus on your breath again it's just a few minutes.
  5. In the end, you will feel relaxed and relived.
Note: This is not the cure to all your problems but a simple tool to handle these problems mindfully. 

Practicing this mindfulness exercise on a regular basis willhelp you calm down and lower your stress level and anxiety issues and you will be more mindful. A mindful person is always more productive. Slowly you will train your mind like you train your body in the gym to handle stress in life in a better way in a mindful way.

There are additional health benefits of regulated breathing like healthy skin, improved brain health, etc. It's a win-win situation so start practicing this small mindfulness exercise for a few minutes daily.
