It’s no secret that stress is an epidemic. According to the American Psychological Association’s 2017 Stress in America report, 75% of Americans reported feeling at least one stress symptom, such as lying awake at night, feeling nervous or anxious, being irritable or angry, or just exhausted. Are you part of that 75%?
What if there was an easy way to immediately reduce stress? And what if it was free, involved no medications, and was available to everyone, young and old, 24/7? Would you try it?
Take One Breath… The idea of using breathing to manage stress has been around a long time, because it works. Drawing from both ancient Yogic tradition and modern-day techniques, Terry Maluk guides you step by step through five simple yet extremely effective ways to use breathing to invite calm, clarity, and focus. Reduced stress means better sleep, including falling asleep faster and staying asleep longer. Better sleep invites more joy and happiness in life. It’s all connected.
Since you’re breathing anyway, why not take advantage of the benefits these subtle techniques can offer? You can start right now.

I discovered Terry in a Facebook Group for authors. Since I only knew her through some friendly chatter on social media, I was anxious to actually read some of her work. I've read many books on meditation and mindfulness, and have found that many of them almost turn simple breathing techniques in an athletic sport! So I really appreciated Terry's approach to stress-reducing breathing techniques that can be implemented easily throughout one's day. A quick read so you can implement the techniques right away, too.Heidi Thorne, author and editor
