Exhale through your nose counting until your lungs are empty. Pause. Continue inhaling fully and exhaling fully until a full breath breathing rhythm is established.
Nutritional Advice: You can get your greens! Just throw a bunch of spinach into your morning smoothie. My Shaklee shakes often carry an extra punch with my favorite fruit like pineapple, or berries and as much spinach as I can get into the blender, then, I add the coconut milk (my preference) to the mix and get a very nutritious start to my day.
