Planning a wedding can be a massively stressful event in your life and as a Reiki Master, I often see clients who are so stressed they are fighting with their partners and literally turning into the dreaded 'Bridezilla'. This is why it is imperative to have some strategies in place to deal with this. So if you are stressed out and overwhelmed the best and most simple thing to get you into a state of total and utter stress free contentment for your big day is breathing properly.
So it's days, maybe even hours before the big event, ‘your fairy tale wedding’ of course & what’s this? you're feeling nervous, sick & maybe a little anxious... damn those pre wedding jitters. We all get them, and for some it can be overwhelming, but with a few simple tactics to combat them you need not let it upset your preparation or enjoyment. Believe it or not, most of us actually don’t breathe properly which in turn can make us feel weak and out of breath so here is a great breathing technique that I like to remind brides to use to help over come their anxiety so they can relax and enjoy every second of their special day.

First of all it is very important to make sure you are breathing correctly. This will help centre you & relax you releasing all that tension & also releasing toxins deep breathing also boosts energy levels and builds stamina, so what are we waiting for.....
Step 1: Sit down and get comfy
take a deep RELAXING breath in through your nose gently expanding your stomach to the count of 5

Step 2: Hold the breath for a count of 10 & visualize beautiful white light cleansing your body & filling you with energy.
Step 3: Gently exhale through your mouth to the count of 5 contracting your stomach muscles and imagining you are releasing all the toxins from your body
Continue the above steps for 5 minutes, and see how much better you feel.  This is a wonderful exercise to do on a daily basis to keep you feeling healthy happy and energized. There are just so many more amazing benefits to deep breathing so keep it up.
I hope you have an amazing and fabulous day and remember, stay calm and just enjoy yourself.
