We often judge & align ourselves, our activities and our pace (how fast or slow we do things) along external factors or along what we perceive our environment expects from us. Like other people. Like our social upbringing. Like watches. Meanwhile there is one thing and one thing only that determines our rhythm & pace throughout our days and our entire life: that is our heart beat. In this exercise we align our breathing with our heart beat and thereby re-connect to our very own pace.
Lay your hand on your heart so you feel your heart beat. Now breath in the rhythm of your heart counting four heart beats. Hold your inhaled breath in the rhythm of your heart counting four heart beats. Breath out all air that is in you in the rhythm of your heart counting four heart beats. Hold your exhaled breath in the rhythm of your heart counting four heart beats. Repeat until you feel your breathing in tune with your own heart rhythm.
Sometimes you may find it difficult to feel your heart beat. Start doing the exercises counting till four each time, after some time you will realise you get out of breath, this is when your heart will start pumping the more and you will feel and find your heart beating. You can now adjust your counting to the rhythm of your heart beating. Also, it helps to press your hand a little bit more down on your rib cage on your left chest under your breast towards your sternum to feel your heart beat.
Do this exercise whenever you are not sure whether you are too fast or too slow. Remember the pace is in you!
