Belly Breathing anxiety and stress aid

Dealing with stress and or anxiety? Try this simple belly breathing exercise. I love this one when I am having an anxiety attack as it helps me focus on breathing and calming down.

Keeping your shoulders relaxed, start by inhaling through your nose. Make sure your inhaling as deeply as possible. Relax your jaw and slowly exhale through pursed lips. Repeat 3-10 times or more as needed.

When we practice deep breathing the oxygen supply to our brain is increased, heart rate is lowered and blood pressure is able to regulate. All of this aids in helping us relax and calm down.
