This program is a visual and audio aid to guide you during your breathing exercise. It is based on the breathing exercise described in ancient Eastern and Oriental practices. In this breathing exercise, you are to inhale for one count, hold your breath for four counts and then exhale for two counts. For example, if you inhale for 4 seconds, you hold your breath for 16 seconds and then exhale for 8 seconds.

In the trial, all the functions are available except that the number of repetitions is fixed and every time you run and exit the program there will be a reminder dialog. In the full version, you can set the number of repetitions and there is no reminder dialog.
You can customize the sounds to be played marking the beginning of each phase of breathing. Just copy your own wav files into the installation folder and rename them as 1.wav, 4.wav and 2.wav, each to be used as markers for the beginning of each breathing phase.
