Breathing for peace

** always take care of breathing exercises, like any exercise, don't over do it **

With your next inhalation take a little more air and a little more time.

With the next exhalation take a little more time and expel a little more.

*Gradual* increase each time, don't rush to extend.

Repeat until you are jerking the final step of the 'in' to get that little more, and twitching a cough to force out that last bit on the 'out'. When you are down to about 4 long "in's" and "out's" a minute, you will be deeply at peace.

A change in temperature on the top of your head probably means you are not exhaling enough, please stop and relax.

Thanks for the exercise...I will give it a go and get back to you. It's similar to a version of breathing we do in Karate as well.
