Max Kirsten’s favourite technique to calm nerves, get clarity of mind, relax the body, and increase energy.

Posted by Samantha Rentz on December 2nd 2013
  • Today, I’d like to share one of my favourite techniques to calm nerves, get clarity of mind, relax the body, and increase energy.

… and it only takes 2 minutes to do! I call it the ‘Square Deep Breathing Technique’.

Step 1: Get centred, put both feet on the floor if you’re sitting down, and you may even want to close your eyes.

Step 2: Put one hand on your diaphragm (upper belly) to make sure that’s where you’re breathing from. Inhale for 5 slow seconds, letting your breath start in the upper belly and move up towards the chest.

Step 3: Hold your breath for 5 seconds.

Step 4: Exhale slowly for 5 seconds.

Step 5: Hold your breath again for 5 seconds after all of the air has been expelled from your lungs.

Step 6: Repeat for 2 minutes. you are creating a ’square’ with your breath. I use this technique before any big speech or presentation.

Notice how you are creating a ’square’ with your breath, it even works if you are feeling emotional, stressed, or worried…
