Ok to exhale through my mouth?

by Headspace » Tue Jul 22, 2014 1:10 am


For some reason I prefer to exhale through my nose- that is my natural way. Am I supposed to start exhaling through my mouth? I've tried that but it really takes concentration away from from meditating.

Andy's answer:

Throughout all of the Headspace exercises, the encouragement is to allow the body to breathe quite naturally, exactly as it wants to. The only exception to that rule is at the beginning of each exercise, where I ask you to take a couple of deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth. This simply helps ground the mind and is just for that initial part of the exercise. After that, you can continue in the usual way.
