<![CDATA["Within you there is stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself." --Herman Hesse Holidays easily can become overwhelming, especially for anyone who has been impacted by a serious illness such as cancer. It is common to feel out of step with the rest of the world, and wonder, "How can I celebrate with so many things on my mind? How will I manage the seasonal pressures, emotions and stresses?" Dr. Andrew Weil, director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, recommends trying the 4-7-8 breathing technique for a less stressful holiday season. This breathing technique is natural tranquilizer, and it gains effectiveness with practice. Although it works in any position, sit with your back straight while learning the exercise. Place the tip of your tongue against the ridge of tissue just behind your upper front teeth, and keep it there through the entire exercise. You will be exhaling through your mouth while pursing your lips slightly. As the directions on his website (www.drweil.com) state, this popular exercise requires no equipment, is easy to remember, takes about three minutes, and can be done anywhere: * Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound. * Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of four. * Hold your breath for a count of seven. * Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound to a count of eight. * This is one breath. Now inhale again and repeat the cycle three more times for a total of four breaths. Dr. Weil recommends doing this at least twice a day. Do not do more than four breaths at one time for the first month of practice. Later, if you wish, you can extend it to eight breaths. The exact time you spend on each phase is not important; but the ratio of 4:7:8 is. To view a short demonstration: visit www.drweil.com and type 4-7-8 breathing in the search box. With practice this technique will quickly become a very useful "sanctuary" that you will always have with you. Use it whenever internal tension arises or to help you fall asleep. Enjoy the holidays ... one breath at a time! No need for joys of the holidays to stress you. Retreat to 4-7-8 breathing and stress the joys instead.
