Hi, I’m The Dolly Lammy,

Your visual aide as a reminder to use the power of your breath.

I am also sharing with you the many benefits of the simple Belly-Gut (BG) Breathing technique that consciously activates your diaphragm.

BG breathing is one of the best and simplest ways to combat stress. Even if this practice is well known, it is easily forgotten or overlooked in moments of stress.

This is where I come in. I am the solution to this problem.

I will be with you anywhere you go.

My customers explain it best:

“I am the proud owner of a sacred Dolly Lammy. Its message of ‘just breathe’ is remarkable. I have placed this inspirational companion right by my computer, ensuring that we have eye contact. Every glance reminds me to not only ‘just breathe’ but to breathe deeply, focus, and stay positive. The Dolly Lammy brings me inner peace.”

-C. Covassin, Major Office Leasing Company

What is the most effective way to breathe?

The most effective way to breathe is by activating the diaphragm.  Belly-Gut Breathing is the simple act of breathing in and out of the tummy.

One of the largest muscles in the body, the diaphragm sits underneath the lungs and separates the chest from the abdomen.  When we breathe into our belly-gut, the diaphragm moves downward more fully, expanding the lungs to take in the greatest amount of oxygen, fueling every cell in the body.  When we breathe out by pulling in our belly-gut, the diaphragm pushes the lungs up, expelling the maximum amount of carbon dioxide. BG Breathing leads to the full expansion of our whole torso and beyond.

An easy way to think about it is:

Breathe in….Belly out.
Breathe out…Belly in.

Breathing this way maximizes the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide.  Expanding the lungs insures optimal oxygenation of cells throughout the body, slows the heart rate to help maintain focus, improve memory and reduce stress.  For more info on the benefits, click here

“A few nice deep breaths can be relaxing and is a quick and easy stress reliever. So easy that you can do this anytime and anywhere. When you do breathing exercises you will be less stressed and able to handle situations more easily.”

-Marianne Ross, PH.D.

Belly-Gut deep breathing reduces stress

Stress triggers changes in the body that can make you more likely to get sick, or make existing ailments worse.

Stress contributes to:

    • Lack of energy and concentration
    • Memory loss
    • Increased anxiety
    • Depression
    • Weight gain or loss
    • Heart problems

…and more!

De-stressing is a challenge for most people, but deep diaphragmatic breathing can help reduce stress and relax with ease.

How do I, The Dolly Lammy remind you to breathe?

It’s simple really.

As a visual aide or cue, I am the missing link between breathing fully with the diaphragm and remembering to breathe this way as often as possible.

My big belly will prompt you to activate your diaphragm and with the phrase ‘Just breathe’ on my arm, I will remind you to practice effective breathing whenever you can, wherever you are.  As an added benefit,  my head is up, my back is straight, my shoulders are down and my arms are relaxed, as good posture supports greater lung capacity.

Place me where you will see me throughout the day.  I am small enough to take anywhere but large enough to catch your eye.  I can sit next to your computer, night stand, the dashboard of the car, in your purse, or …. you get the idea.

As your visual aide, place me wherever you can see me to support you in living your best life.  I will remind you to activate your diaphragm with every breath you take.

That’s it!

What a difference The Dolly Lammy has made in my life! Being a constant reminder of conscious breathing, I am now aware of the initial tendency to hold my breath during stressful moments throughout each day and the negative effect that practice has. Breathing through it is a much better solution. This is a cute and simple aid to better overall health. Many thanks.”
