Take a deep breath ten times in a row We breathe constantly throughout our life, and it matters how we breathe. Breathing deeply is a prerequisite for all self-cultivation and relaxation. Our breathing is a measure of our well-being at any given time. We have the remarkable ability to control our breathing, making it a very useful tool in our hands. Try to break up the day by breathing very deeply ten times, in any situation. Thus we cleanse the mind and body of unnecessary material.
