Imagine you start your vacation after a long extended time working very hard. It’s your first day on vacation and you finally get to the hotel, you plop yourself down on the bed and say….’aaaah’.
Often we treasure our vacation times and resign ourselves to not experience that level of relaxation except on those few and far between, times off.
What if, though, you could get to that state of relaxation by saying the word ‘aaaaah’? This is toning.
Toning is the conscious pronunciation of extended vowel sounds that can have impact in other parts of the body. It is not chanting nor singing.
If you sit yourself down, comfortably, for 10 minutes a day, and say ‘aaah’ – or any other vowel sound that you prefer – repeatedly through each elongated exhalation – you will get to a more peaceful state of mind.
