5 Fingers for Peace:)? Well as kids we all used to count on our fingers.Time to bring that finger counting back!!
During holiday time there is often much 'to do, people to see and places to be'I can get overwhelmed, do you experience this?
Well I use my fingers to count some deep breaths to reset my attitude - usually 5 will reset me to be more calm in the moment.
Breathe deeply to the belly. So many of us are 'chest' breathers - or shallow breathers and into the belly is so much more effective. We will explore the why for this another day:)
This finger counting method allows for an unseen way to count my breaths and a focus to take my mind out of th situation even if just for a few moments.
In a stressed situation where I know I can feel myself getting riled up - I place my hand on my body even if just the side of my leg if I'm standing - and count 5 breaths. If you are well into 'it' - use both hands - 10 breaths!
It's simple yet effective - the focus on the count brings me back to centre and keeps me on track to finish all five breaths and another 5 if I need more.
If you want/need additional focus - say to yourself... Breathing in, breathing out for each breath.
By the way, are you feeling caught up in all the "to do's"already?
