When Uniqlo asked us to partner with them, we wanted to create a simple exercise that anyone could use to find peace in moments of stress or anxiety.
Balance is something that everyone should search for. Whether it’s the external balance of living in harmony with the natural world or the internal balance of finding calm in your own mind.
Maintaining balance requires daily attention: small corrections now help to avoid big hurdles later.
When @uniqlo_uk asked us to partner with them, we wanted to create a simple exercise that anyone could use to find peace in moments of stress or anxiety.When things weigh you down, focus on something that you can control, like your breathing:
Breathe in for 4,
Hold for 2,
Breathe out for 6,
Use this time to notice your thoughts and feelings. With every breath, feel the lightness filling your body. Then, when you feel ready, clear your mind and #takeflight.
You can find our breathing technique instructions in Uniqlo shops across Europe.
