I like this article! I definitely will be trying it. Like someone else said before it should have been in audio but nevertheless with practice I will be able to do the different steps automatically. Thanks!
We shouldn't need this reminder, but unfortunately, we do. Thanks

I created my own audio file to help guide me through this process. I recorded myself using a tape recorder and giving instructions with the time intervals suggested. It helps so you don't have to try to worry about whether or not you're getting the correct time with each step. Then, I dimmed the lights and listened to the instructions. It made a big difference!
Im in nursing school and 8-10 breaths per minute is cause for concern. We are taught that 12-24 breaths per minute is what the body needs for adequate tissue oxygenation and adequate gas exchange. Im curious about why 8-10 is considered ideal in this article??
I do something similar in the morning, but didn't really ever have a "guide". Reading this helps me add some visualization to the breathing. I also have an article to share with all my Facebook friends! ::yoink::
