Let me ask you a question.
Have you felt stressed so far today?
Is this a regular thing for you?
If you answered yes, you’re not alone. I’m no stranger to stress!

And luckily there are so many things we can do to manage our stress.
Here is something that has been working really well for me lately.
The breath is one of the most useful tools we have to settle our mind and relieve stress.
This advanced breathing technique is really quite simple and accessible to anyone, anywhere, any time.
It’s called Square Breath. It’s super easy to remember how to do because you do it just the way it sounds.
The beginning breath ratio is 4 x 4 x 4 x 4.
Easy right? Start with a really deep breath in and just release it.
Then seal your lips and:
- breathe in through your nose for 4 counts
- hold the inhale for 4 counts
- exhale through your nose for 4 counts
- hold the exhale of 4 counts
That’s one round. In as 5 rounds you can completely shift your mind towards more peaceful thoughts.
Here’s a video that explains more about the square breath. Use it any time life seems to run away with you.
I have been getting right into breathing lately in a big big way as I’ve been in serious need of de-stressing (aren’t we all?) and I’ve found a method of breathing that literally changed my life.
One thing that can really stress our bodies out more than anything else on earth is diet. If you eat sugar or caffeine in your diet and you are feeling stressed, you might want to look at improving that first.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
