Place your hands on both sides of your lower ribs. On your inhale, push the ribs away from your body while drawing them back towards your spine on the exhale. The mechanics activate the diaphragm to deepen the breath.
Slow & controlled diaphragmatic breathing with an elongated exhale through your nose triggers the body's natural relaxation response by activating the parasympathetic nervous system.
