This breathing exercise helps to cool your mind and your body which is helpful when you’re experiencing symptoms of stress, anxiety or worry.
Sit in a comfortable position with your back straight and bring your focus to your breath.
Protrude your tongue out from your mouth and curl the sides together making it into the shape of a straw. If you’re unable to fully curl your tongue, a small curl will also work.
Slowly breathe in through your mouth making a slight hissing sound until your lungs feel full. You should feel the sensation of the cold air caressing your tongue.
Exhale slowly through your nostrils until your lungs are empty. Repeat this breathing process.
If you need to relax your tongue at any point please do so and re-curl it when ready.
