Simply – roll your shoulders

Conscious Freedom

Let’s begin with the shoulders. freedom

Let the shoulders drop into a comfortable position.

Be aware of how you position your shoulders.

We tend to roll our shoulders forward when we focus on a cell phone, work at a desk, do crafts, bike ride, eat or are in a state of shock by a loud noise or trauma.

When we roll the shoulders forward, we constrict our breathing, decreasing the flow of oxygen and blood flow around our entire head and body. Slumping the shoulders, can begin a life time of  troubles with posture, emotional and body stress and strains. by causing more stress on our physical and emotional systems.

When we reverse the roll, it opens our chest so we can clear our lungs and breathe deeper. It creates space to release stuck emotions and gas.

Take a little time and consciously keep those  shoulders moving forward and backwards often throughout the day.

Stop and relax your mind and body.

Let yourself  belly breath and  you will feel like you are living a Relaxation Island© Experience.
