Sit up straight up and breath slowly into your lower abdomen on the inhale.


Breaths emphasizing the inhale and shortening the exhale reduce vagal-nerve activity, which increases sympathetic tone.

The Awake breath more specifically increases your adrenaline and blood alkalinity. Raising those levels activates yours body's natural fight or flight response by stimulating your sympathetic nervous system, the control center for alertness, concentration and energy.
