Take a moment to be mindful while you are waiting for the butter to filter. Sit on a chair and practise yoga breath. Breathe in through your nose. Fill your stomach with air first and then your chest and finally all the way up to your collarbones. Empty out the air in the opposite order, collarbones, chest and last stomach. Take a short paus between in and out breath and out and in breath. Breath yoga breath for a few minutes.
