“Breathing Space” Exercises

Instructions: Create your “best fit” combination of 10-20 minutes a day of mindful breathing by carving out a “Breathing Space” for yourself.  Mindful Breathing is most effective when practiced in 10-continuous-minutes a day, though it is important to work up to 10 minutes at a time as you are able to nudge, and not force yourself!

Here are some guided Breathing Space exercises for you to choose from.  If you want to attempt 10 minutes a day, try a 3-minute morning space followed by 7-minutes before bed.  Or two separate 5-minute segments.  Again, the aim is to develop a daily discipline to train your brain for Stable and Open Attention.

Feel free to download the Breathing Space mp3s from our Public Dropbox, which is where the above links will take you.
