Bumble bee breath
Did you know that the sound of our own voice is soothing to our nervous system? Bumble-bee-breath is perfect to try this out. Breathe in and slowly, but loudly, let the air out of your lungs. Sprinkle the experience with a moment of joy and allow yourself a little bit of playfulness: change your tone or volume or pretend you are singing without words. Perfect for a morning moment in front of the mirror;)
Tip for therapists: this is a great way of practising atunement with our own senses and our body, but also considering how we can communicate without words?
Added bonus: if you are learning more about breathwork, this exercise can help you actually hear the length of your out-breath.
