If you're ever having trouble thinking, relaxing, or just need a break, try breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth. When you inhale, imagine that the air is colored blue. Hold the breath for a moment and visualize all the stress as the color red. Merge these two together to make a purple cloud and exhale. This releaves a little bit of stress and helps the mind to focus on the task at hand.
