Star Wars Fuel Your Force, Week 6, Down Breathing

Winding down after a hard day or tough workout can be as easy as breathing. You just need to take the time to do it. Week 6 of our 8-week Star Wars Fuel Your Force program shows you how to encourage relaxation and recovery with a technique called box breathing. Here’s how it works: you’ll inhale deeply, hold your breath, let it out slowly, and hold the exhale (imagine each portion of the breath forming the side of a square box). Use it to rebalance yourself after any stressful time.
