Mickey Green msg Project #1 Part B H180 Section 8480 For this exercise, I will do restful breathing. Restful breathing can be practiced in a seated position or lying down. The exercise can use the upper chest area or the lower abdominal area. The exercise requires that the person take calm and steady breaths. Today is day one of the restful breathing exercise that I will try to accomplish over a period of six days. Today as I sat in class, I tried to think of what I was supposed to do. I remembered what the exercise said. I sat in my seat in class and I tried the exercise. I felt my upper chest doing all the work. It felt powerful yet in some ways it felt overwhelming. It felt overwhelming because I am not used to having much stress put onto my upper chest. I tried to make sure that my chest did not start to hurt, but that did not happen. I thought about my abdominal muscles doing the work, but that idea did not happen. I then had to stop the exercise because of the stress I put on my upper chest. This exercise felt like rocks resting on top of me. For the first time doing this exercise, I did not like the outcome. It was not what I thought would happen. For the first time doing the restful breathing exercise, I hope that the next time will be less hard than this time. Today was day two of the restful breathing exercise. Today as I awoke from my slumber, I remembered what the exercise said. I went to class to do the exercise. As I sat down, I breathed with my abdominal muscles.
