Breathing exercise to cool down.

Wether you need to cool down from some heated emotions such as anger, frustration or arousal. Or your body is physically feeling very heated and uncomfortable. This breathing exercise will help you do just that.

It lowers our body temperature and brings renewed fresh energy into the tissues. People with low blood pressure or breathing problems such as asthma should skip this practice.


  • Sit down in any comfortable seated position.
  • Try to keep your spine straight, and find some support if you need it through a wall or chair.
  • Close your eyes or focus your eyes on a point in front of you that does not move.
  • Roll your tongue into a tube like shape, and bring it partly outside of your mouth.
  • Breath in slowly through your tongue, try to fill your lungs up with air fully.
  • And then gently breath out trough your nose, closing your mouth while doing so.
  • Repeat this cycle 4 times, and then take a break.
  • Breath in and out normally until you feel ready to start again.

This practice should be done for 5-10 minutes.

When you feel yourself becoming dizzy or cold stop the exercise, as your body is adjusting to increase in oxygen. You can start the practice again tomorrow.

If this simple practice helped you, please share this blog with some friends or family who might benefit from it too. This way we can help more people become a healthier version of themselves, which is what I love to do.
