The Prayer Wheel
‘Prayer Wheel’ is an excellent way to clear the mind and focus on a task at
hand, calm ourselves after conflict, wake up and focus when we’re tired, or just
relieve the stress of the day. To perform the Prayer Wheel, place hands together
in front of the chest, as if in prayer. Breathe in deeply as you lift your hands
up over your head, then around to each respective side, exhaling as they go down
and back around to the prayer position. Repeat this process as many times as you
want or need.
My grandmother used the Prayer Wheel exercise to lower her
blood pressure before open heart surgery - it worked!
