A calmer, gentler you in just three minutes? Say bye-bye to stress because according to Emmy-Lou Knowles, Mediation Coach and Intuitive Healer, anyone can master this.  

Emmy-Lou explains to The Daily Mail that all you need to do is close your eyes or simply stare at a fixed point if you are at your desk for example and place your feet flat on the floor for stability

Next, turn all focus to pulling in your breath, sucking the oxygen deep into your belly through the nose as though pulling breath in through two straws up the nostrils.  

Then, simply sigh. 'A sigh is wonderful as it's effectively telling the body that we are going to hit the reset button on the pattern,' she said.

Then start counting the breath in and out through the nose as per the breathing ritual in the pink box.

Emmy Lou says you should repeat this eight times - or at whichever number feels good and comfortable for you - visualizing and allowing the shoulders, eyes, mouth and brow to soften.
