“When in Doubt Breathe Out”BradCliff Breathing®
Tania explained the BradCliff Green Dot – using a green sticker as a reminder to stop, drop, flow and let go. Here’s the process:
Do a quick body check for tension, shoulders raise and release, pull shoulder blades together at the back and release, move legs and pelvis (order of tension release does not matter)
Flow and let go
Breathe Out through your mouth if necessary (nose is normal) as we hold a lot of tension in the jaw. Try breathing out as if you are blowing out a candle. Breathe in via the nose low and slow (belly by the belt).
After breathing out… pause… continue what you were doing.
Other topics discussed
- Daily structure of basic wellbeing: sleep, exercise, nutrition, breaks
- Physiological rhythms and breathing: freeze, fight, flight reactions
- Work structure routines
