Video: Diaphragm Exercises Part 2 (12-12-17) Transformation FME
Welcome to this week’s transformation tools!
December: Franklin Method in Daily Life: Breathing
This month we are focusing on breathing. December is a stressful month for a lot of people. It’s a month where we sometimes add a little extra to our load. For example: extra Travel, family, shopping, cooking can cause our stress level to increase. So this month we’re going to remind you to breathe and treat yourself to more oxygen, improved circulation and reduced stress.
If we can improve something we do that often, the quality of our life will improve in general. Well, breathing is something we do very often: we breathe about 20000 times a day!
