One of the Chi Kung techniques I use occassionally to energise my body and calm my mind is what I call ‘360 degree breathing’.
You can do this skill either lying down, sitting or standing.
Here’s how it works;
- Take a deep breathe and imagine you are breathing in good Chi inside every cell of your body
- Breathe out slowly and imagine you are breathing out negative Chi (toxins or negative thoughts or feelings)
- Do at least 8 repetitions to start with and build to whatever is comfortable for you
- relax your breathing – make it natural – don’t force it
A very simple technique that with practice will give you a quick way of feeling good and staying focused when you need to.
