Deep breathing techniques can help you feel connected to your body, allowing you to be grounded in the present moment, taking your awareness away from any troubles in your head and quieting your mind for a few moments of bliss.

Rub this unbe-leaf-able blend into your chest and inhale deeply. Feel the coolness and luxuriate in the sensation of deeper breathing!
