Welcome to day 1 of our guided meditations for optimizing mental and physical health!
I’m Marin McCue, founder of dope(a)me mind-body-life coaching. I teach, inspire and lead by example in how to slow down (to speed up). When we slow down thoughts, movements, brain waves and breath, we get access to re-training self-talk patterns and discover the innate healer within. Optimize your mental and physical health so you can be FIT for your unique contribution in this world!
Specifically, breath as a functional full body breath. Functional breathing is known to have a number of emotional and physical health benefits, including helping with decreasing stress and increasing calm, increase energy levels, pain management and stimulating the lymphatic system.
Start by sitting with a neutral spine (cross-legged or other comfortable positioning of your legs). You may prefer to lay in Savasana (or Corpse Pose) to help with calmness, relaxation and rest.
Place your hands on your side ribs. Breathe in and support the expansion of your belly, sides, back, ribs and chest. Your exhale is a full surrender and let go.
Once you are in a comfortable position for the next 10 minutes, click on the link to my meditation on getting grounded with functional breathing below.
