Relaxation Technique: Breathing

  1. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose, filling your abdomen. Pause briefly and exhale through your mouth, making a quiet whooshing sound like the wind as you blow gently out. Your mouth, tongue, and jaw will be relaxed. Focus on the sound and feeling of breathing as you become more and more relaxed. As you become more relaxed, gather up a frying pan, butter, bread, and cheese.
  2. Place the pan on the stove over medium heat.
  3. Lightly butter one side of one piece of bread and put it on the heated pan.
  4. Next, place your desired quantity of sliced cheese on top of the bread. Butter one side of a second slice of bread and place it (buttered side out) on top of the cheese right away.
  5. You may wish to cover the pan to help the cheese melt. Also, keep breathing.
  6. Wait one minute and check to see if the bottom slice of bread has browned.  When it has achieved a light golden brown color, you may flip the sandwich over and cook the other side.
  7. Remember, the second side will cook faster because the sandwich knows how much you want to eat it.
  8. Keep breathing the air.
  9. When the second side has browned, you may remove it from heat, place it on a plate, and cut it diagonally, but not horizontally.
  10. You may now eat your grilled cheese sandwich and discontinue breathing.
