Alternate nostril breathing
This type of breathing should be done sitting down in a comfortable place, lengthening the spine and opening the chest.
“Rest your left hand in your lap and raise your right hand,” advises Healthline.
“Then, rest the pointer and middle fingers of your right hand on your forehead, in between the eyebrows.
“Close your eyes, inhaling and exhaling through your nose.
“Use your right thumb to close the right-hand nostril and inhale slowly through the left.
“Pinch your nose closed between your right thumb and ring finger, holding the breath in for a moment.
“Use your right ring finger to close your left nostril and exhale through the right, waiting for a moment before you inhale again.
“Inhale slowly through the right nostril.
“Pinch your nose closed again, pausing for a moment.
“Now, open the left side and exhale, waiting a moment before you inhale again.
“Repeat this cycle of inhaling and exhaling through either nostril up to 10 times. Each cycle should take up to 40 seconds.”
