Choose/focus on a Theme in the Begin Here guidebook.Breath is life. Variety is the spice of life and so is variety of breathing. The exercises create different results and is why I have so many. Just choose your theme, follow the Blue Guidebook (or its pdf) and track via the FOUR surveys how you feel, sleep, focus, your energy, stamina, situations where you remain calm instead of stressed etc.
You would not use all the spices in your kitchen in one meal would you?
Breathing is similar so OVER TIME each day or week add one or more to see how they make you feel.
Learn and practice your favorite techniques and exercises included in that theme. Awareness is key so follow the breath to sensing, feeling, buzzing, tingling, breeze-like sensations, body warmth or coolness.Over the weeks and months come back to the exercises or techniques you have most learned to like the way they make you feel, in the moment or throughout the day.
