Breathing Techniques For Stress

Slower we breathe, longer we live.

Stress and related emotions such as fear and anxiety are necessary for survival as their main purpose is to help keep us alive and away from danger. However, experiencing too much stress is detrimental to your health. It is vital that you find techniques that will help minimise the negative effects of stress and can be practiced ideally on a daily basis. Breathing techniques have always been highly regarded as the best way to reduce stress.

To make sure you have a good breathing technique, breathe deeply, slowly and mindfully from your abdomen. Breathe in through your nose, allowing oxygen to fill your lungs and exhale through your mouth. Feel your stomach rise and fall and each time try to inhale and exhale for longer, counting slowly in your mind.

To help instil relaxation, you may prefer to lie down and close your eyes. As a result your stress and anxiety will be minimised and you will feel more relaxed and together.
