Breathing exercise for high blood pressure – Guided meditation breath awareness


This is a guided breathing meditation
for reducing your blood pressure. Take a break from what you’re doing choose a
comfortable place to sit and close your eyes. Keep your spine long and feel your
sitting bones rooted to your seat. If you’re in a chair put your feet flat on
the ground. Become aware of where your head is
positioned. Imagine a thread that connects the top of your head to the sky
pulling you gently upwards but keep your chin tucked very slightly in toward your
chest putting your head into a neutral position. This allows you to be able to
breathe fully. Pay attention to the journey of your
breath. Let the air fill your tummy, use that deep belly breath and direct it to
any tense areas of your body. Every exhalation is an opportunity to release
even further. Allow yourself to relax your head and
face notice any tension that may have crept into your forehead your cheeks or
your throat. Allow all the muscles in your face to go loose and heavy. Notice in particular your jaw. Release
any tension in your jaw allowing your teeth to rest gently together and your
lips to part slightly. Relax any tension you might have in your neck and
shoulders. Rest your hands close to your lower belly so you can feel your breath
expanding and imagine it moving through your body. Really pay attention to your
breath. Breathing slowly through your nose let the air flow as you inhale and
expand your belly and now relax as you breathe out. Notice as each inhale breath
expands your sides and lower ribs filling the belly your back and lower
back. Breathe slowly into your ribs as you
exhale let the breath go with a gentle sigh through the nose or mouth and feel
the belly coming back in. Do not force this process. Simply pay attention to
your breath as it flows in and out of your body. Smoothly flowing, healing
breath. Allow your breath to bring the oxygen to
your body and notice how much calmer you have become. As you go forward with your day remember to come back to your breath and feel thankful for this amazing
system you have to bring calm to your life. When you are ready open your eyes
feeling calm refreshed and ready for the rest of your day.
Smile you made this time to focus on you and your breath.
