This is a helpful article of how to snap out of snapping at your kids. I love that the mom is practising Nadi Shodhana (Alternate Nostril Breathing) to help create balance.
Here is how you can practise Nadi Shodhana at home, in the supermarket, in the car, wherever!
• With your right hand, bring your pointer finger and middle finger to rest between your eyebrows, lightly using them as an anchor.
• Start with an exhale. Close your right nostril with your right thumb and exhale gently but fully through the left nostril.
• Keeping the right nostril closed, inhale through the left nostril and deep into the belly.
• As you inhale, allow the breath to travel upward along the left side of the spine—from the pelvic floor, up through the organs of reproduction and elimination, through the left kidney, the spleen, the left lung, the heart, and up through the left side of the throat, face, and head.
• Now close the left nostril with your ring finger so both nostrils are held closed; retain your breath at the top of the inhale for a brief pause.
• Now open your right nostril, and exhale surrendering the breath down the right side of the body—from the right side of the head, face, and throat, down the right side of the spine through the heart, the right lung, the liver, the right kidney, the organs of reproduction and elimination, and down to the pelvic floor.
• Pause gently at the bottom of the exhalation.
• Keeping the left nostril closed, inhale once again through the right nostril.
• Focus on the breath traveling up the through the right side of the body.
• When you reach the top of the inhale, again hold both nostrils closed (with ring finger and thumb) for a brief pause.
• Now open your left nostril and release the breath slowly through the left side focusing on it working its way down through the left side of the body. Pause briefly at the bottom.
