I am a compassionate researcher, philosopher, blogger, skilled helper. Passionately connecting (off- and online) with people on a global scale, for the purpose to exchange knowledge, experiences and perspectives. My personal building stones are the wisdom of our ancestors and of nature. In addition, the knowledge and technology of the 21st century. By sharing these building blocks and offering guidance through my website, I aim to inspire my fellow Human Beings to Connect.

Breathing, a relaxing tool and suitable for various circumstances. For several years, one of my fathers gave me singing lessons. An important part of warming up your vocal instrument is a breathing tool. In addition, this way of breathing is also very helpful to use in case you feel overwhelmed, are panicked or in any other situation you feel you need to calm down. Studies have shown the positive effects (example1, example2). It could even help to fall asleep. Research and you will find many tutorials, articles, etc.

Instructions:

Stand still, or sit down.
If you feel like it, you can close your eyes.
Or, focus on a specific point in the space you’re at.

Breath-in for a duration of 4 seconds.
Hold that bit of air within, 4 seconds.
Breath-out for a duration of 4 seconds.
Don’t breathe for 4 seconds.

Count the seconds in your mind, it will help you focus on your breathing.

Variations:

You can inhale through your nose, exhale via your mouth.
If you find it easier, start with also inhaling via your mouth.
You can variate in duration, the example above is what I am used to.
Experiment while you feel already calm and find out which way feels comfortable.

The best part; you can do it almost anywhere!

Man in the mirror – Soul Music

Recently, I heard this song on the radio and I couldn’t believe it was released over a decade ago. The disbelieve has nothing to do with me getting older, but with the fact that it is still, unfortunately, relevant.
