When You Are in a Panic – Diaphragmatic (deep breathing) technique delivers more oxygen to the body, soothing the nervous system. The diaphragms rhythmic movement also massages your organs.
a. Lie on your front with your head to one side. Rest your arms either side of your head, placing your hands on the floor close to your crown.
b. Take a few moments to settle and get comfortable. Relax and soften your facial muscles, let your eyes close and become aware of your breath. Let your whole body melt into the floor as you exhale.
c. As you inhale fully notice how your belly softly presses int the ground then as you exhale, how it gently retracts again.
d. As you breathe slowly and naturally, move your attention to your ribcage and notice how the side ribs move, widening as you inhale and drawing back as you exhale. Just notice this movement and allow it to be easy without changing it.
e. Widen your attention to focus on your lower back. Feel how it expands and opens as you breathe in and softens and releases down as you breathe out.
f. Turn your head to the other side to even out the stretch and breathe with the same deep awareness for a few more minutes.
g. Come onto all fours, softly spreading your hands open and feeling your back wide and long. Keep your hands under your shoulders and your knees under your hips. Gently bring your feet together and as you breathe out draw your hips back to your heels, then ease your butt back until it touches your feet to create a gentle stretch through your spine. (Child pose in yoga).
h. Release your ribs down onto your thighs and lower your chest and shoulders to bring your arms and forehead to relax on the floor. Rest here completely surrendering your body to gravity.
After that you should be feeling a lot calmer

Its all about fish collagen. Heard of it? I have heard of just plain collagen powder but not this. ‘Fish collagen is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently into the body and has superior bioavailability over bovine or porcine collagens’.
Fish collagen can be absorbed at a higher level through the intestinal barrier into the bloodstream and carried throughout the body. This leads to collagen synthesis in the joint tissues, bones, skin dermis and many other essential body systems. Sounds like good stuff to me.
The health benefits of this collagen is
1. Anti aging
2. Helps regenerate and heal bones
3. Heals wounds
4. Increases your protein intake
5. Has antibacterial qualities
This collagen was first found about 1985 by a pharmacist extracting it from the skin of fish. Sometimes it can be called marine collagen but marine collagen could be extracted from shellfish and jellyfish which is not recommended so keep that in mind.
This protien comes from the scales, skin, bones and fins of fresh or saltwater fish and parts we do not normally eat like the eyes and the rest of the head. You can also get this protein through making a fish stock by boiling the whole of the fish (gutted). Fish collagen is high in essential and non-essential amino acids.
Anyway it all sounds good. I think I may make a face mask out of it see if it plumps up the wrinkles.
Will let you know.
Apparently it does not smell like fish so you don’t have to worry about the fishy smell on your face or food. Hydrolyzed fish collagen is the best as it is broken into small molecules and easily absorbed.
For me I think its worth giving a try.
