Breathing To Reduce Anxiety

BREATHE TO REDUCE ANXIETY

Imagine having an anxiety attack. Your heart races, palms sweat, stomach turns, and you begin to hyperventilate. In a moment of panic your breath can turn into an involuntary response.

Unlike your cardiovascular and digestive systems, your respiratory system can function both consciously and unconsciously. In a moment of panic you can change how you breath; you can change how your body reacts.

The next time you are in a moment of panic try to breath deeply. A great technique is the ‘massage breath’. This infographic explains this simple breath that can calm the body and mind in a moment of panic.
