    Focused breathing sounds like such a simple exercise but its rewards are rich. I love the joke about the person who asked their guru how long they should meditate. His reply was an hour and if you are too busy, then you need to do two hours.
    Being able to stop in your day to engage in the exercises you suggest is such a great way to check on your stress level. Stress worsens pain, deep breathing inhibits stress which reduces pain. Works for me.

    I definitely find doing these breathing exercises helps a lot in getting ready for sleep. Sometimes I have a problem with falling asleep, not necessarily racing thoughts, just an inability to relax. And focusing on something like that helps a lot.
