Breath to Balance the Mind’s Mental Energy

Sit cross-legged with your spine straight. Arms are straight with the sides of the hands resting on the knees. The tips of the forefingers and thumbs are touching, creating a circle, and the other fingers are straight. The eyes are open and gazing straight ahead. Inhale through the nose for 5 seconds. Hold the breath for 10 seconds and then exhale through the nose for 5 seconds. Continue for 3-11 minutes. Focus on the inflow and outflow of the breath.
