Ok, so not that deeply.

The guys at http://www.stopandbreath.com offer the following advice to harness the mindfulness potential of your breathing:

Learning to breath properly is easy and will reward you with immediate results. Simply follow these 7 easy steps….

  1. Stand or sit comfortably with a straight spine.
  2. Relax your shoulders and place your hands on your lap or at your side.
  3. Exhale completely, drawing the diaphragm in and up.
  4. Slowly inhale through your nose by contracting your diaphragm out and down. Your belly should rise, followed by your mid-chest and finally your upper-chest as air fills your lungs.
  5. Pause.
  6. Slowly exhale through your nose while drawing your diaphragm and up.
  7. Repeat this process 3 time, taking consecutively fuller breaths with each inhale.

Congratulations, you’ve just taken 3 deep breaths! Many people have not taken the time to breath this deeply since childhood!
