Exercise: Energy Wave Breathing 

 

This is an excellent exercise for ridding yourself of tension and giving yourself a quick energy boost. 

 

It can be done anywhere (even at a stoplight). 

 

Sit comfortably with your hands in your lap. 

 

As you slowly inhale, progressively tense your muscles and hold them in the following order: 

 

– Feet 

 

– Calves 

 

– Thighs 

 

– Buttocks 

 

– Pelvis 

 

– Stomach

 

– Forearms 

 

– Upper arms 

 

– Chest (pecs) 

 

– Neck (front, back, and sides) 

 

Keep all of your muscles tense for a few seconds. 

 

Exhale and relax all muscles in the opposite order. 

 

Repeat 3 times (total).
