25 Nov Ground and Flow: Digital Detox Breath
We spend an enormous amount of time on our laptops and on our phones. We become constricted in our
breathing because our breathing mechanisms don’t move freely due to posture, socialisation, and trauma.
This technique improves blood circulation through your body and to every cell.
This technique is most effective when done outside. Try to do this in your garden or on your balcony. If you have access to grass, do this barefoot so you can also get the grounding effect of the earth.
How to Practice:
Stand with your feet hip distance apart and soften your knees or wherever you are standing or sitting.
Coordinate your breathing and movement of your hands.
Breathe cycle one:
As you inhale slowly, feel as if you are collecting and drawing up revitalising grounding and energy from the
ground with your hands. Exhale slowly as you turn your hands down, imagining that you are sending any anxiety
and fear into the ground.
Breathe cycle TWO:
As you inhale slowly, imagine that you are drawing strength and courage towards your core, the centre of your
belly. As you exhale, turn your palms away from you and imagine that you are releasing frustration.
Breathe cycle THREE:
As you inhale, imagine drawing the warming energy of the sun into your heart and lungs, as your exhale, stretch
your arms back out towards the sky, imagining that you are sending love and compassion into the world.
Repeat all three cycles 3-5 times and then relax back to normal breathing with your eyes closed and hands at
your sides and enjoy the sensations.
