Practice self-awareness by using the following technique:
- Sit still
- Take a deep breath and count 1-10 in ascending and descending order. Do this at least 5 time.
- Label the emotions you feel. For example, “My chest feels tight” or “My heart thumps when I’m nervous”.
- Notice how the sensation changes or lifts when you take a deep breath.
- Take it easy and don’t force anything.
- Use this journal to reflect on your experience.
