Look up and reach for the sky. We spend most of our days hunched over computers, steering wheels, kitchen counters- not to mention our phones– and our breathing gets constricted. Looking up lifts the ribs off the diaphragm and allows us to breathe again. Try it now: Look up, reach, and make sure you are not holding your breath. Allow the ribs to feel the lift and stay lifted even when you bring your arms back down. Notice the freedom in your breathing as a result….ahhh. Amazing, right?
