Bringing attention to breathing patterns and body posture is the first step to body awareness. Deep breathing and a relaxed, alert posture projects an attentive and results-oriented image. Use the information and exercise below to help check the image you are projecting. …read more of Body Awareness Exercise to increase Energy and Efficiency here
