4-Part Breathing Exercise

Updated: Jan 18

Inhale. Pause. Exhale. Pause. Repeat. It really can be that simple.

What part of the breath are you at right now while reading this sentence?

  • Inhale

  • Pause between the inhale and exhale

  • Exhale

  • Pause between the exhale and inhale

There is no right answer but becoming more mindful of your breath can help you realize where you’re at in its cycle.
