Breathing Technique

For the exercise, you’re going to stretch your hand out like a star, with your fingers
spread apart and trace each finger using your other hand (as if we were tracing our
hands to make hand-turkeys) as we breathe. We will start with our thumbs and end with
our pinky fingers.
This activity is called Five-Finger Breathing.

5 finger breathing

Starting at the bottom of your thumb, INHALE through your nose for 2 seconds, tracing
the left side of your thumb from bottom to top
HOLD for 1 second when you hit the tip of your thumb
EXHALE through your mouth for 2 seconds, tracing down the right side of your thumb.
Next, move onto your pointer finger and keep going until you have finished tracing all
This type of breathing helps to calm our brain and allows us to get in-tune with our
breathing, senses, and surroundings.
