Mindset Advantage: Breathe

If you’re not breathing, you’re not focused. If you’re not focused, you can’t see the market. Opportunities slide by in an instant. Hazards reveal themselves only when it’s too late.

You need to breathe. Breathing exercises have proven to reduce stress and increase focus.

Sure, you’re already breathing if you read this. But when you trade… you need a breathing regimen. Whatever it is: Through your nose, out your mouth counting to 10 or 100. Find a method and routine that works for you.

You’ll find balance, clarity and focus when you trade. Your heart rate will come down and you’ll just feel better.

Try it. And enjoy your trading.
