3 Breathing Exercises to help reduce Stress, Anxiety and Anger.
The following are three breathing exercises that I teach clients to use in order to feel calmer. You can use these exercises whenever you feel irritable to avoid getting angry or feeling anxious. I recommended that you practice these exercises several times throughout the day, every day, for a minimum of 30 seconds, in order to build them as a habit.
Inhale for 5 seconds.
Exhale for 6-7 seconds.
When you exhale, tighten your abs and squeeze the air out, as if you’re blowing out candles.
Inhale for 4 seconds.
Hold your breath for 7 seconds. Exhale for 8 seconds.
Left Nostril Breathing
Close off your right nostril and only breath in and out through your left nostril for at least 60 seconds.
