Breathwork for calming and easing anxiety
The breath is mighty powerful and has such a huge impact on the way we feel. It can transform a very anxious situation to something more easeful (ever been annoyed by someone who tells you to "just breathe" when you’re stressed out? There’s good reason for their intentions even though it surely makes for an eyeroll bonanza 🙄!)
So here’s a video of a breathwork practice i use regularly (especially at airports after problematic moments transitioning through the unnecessarily exhausting and dehumanising process of immigration 😒 looking at you Bergen Flesland every damn time 😞) , which I hope will be centring and meditative + useful for relaxation and grounding. It could also be useful for anxiety and stress, so feel free to try this out at any time and see how you feel.
You will need: Floor space to lay down - feel free to luxe it up as you like with blankets, cushions etc. 🧖🏽♀️💅🏾
Really hope that this is useful for you.
Let me know how you go! Thanks for practicing with me! 💗

You know how it goes, sometimes this world can feel like a cesspit of doom, and you want to seek out some light. Or at least, the joy amidst the darkness… So here’s my pick of 3 things to watch this weekend/whenever you have some time. Hope they give you some ease and sweetness. And feel welcome to share yours too!
Is there a record you love that evokes freedom to you?
Perhaps an album that represents a time in your life when you felt your potential so clearly? Or nostalgia as you were exploring new territories?
I’d love to know!

Sometimes we just need an injection of something to help us on our way. Cause life can get tricky sometimes. We might be stuck in a situation. A limiting belief. An unhelpful way of being. And need a little reboot. So, here’s an offering of a couple of things to help support you in shifting your state. To one that is thriving not just surviving. 💜
Afua Hirsch, Keanu (+ puppes), what therapy is like for queer people of colour, Timbaland + Pharrell gassing each other up, encouragement to go for your dreams, words on womxn’s bodies, Stormzy on: confidence, a vibey playlist, a film quiz, and the most unsafe looking sh✨t i’ve ever seen!
