Good morning. I am going to keep this simple. There is much information about this if you do your own research, but here are the basic tidbits about how to curb and sometimes halt your anxious feelings. So many of us, as we rush around in our lives, forget how to breath properly. I was speaking with a friend who was in one of my classes and he was talking about watching a baby breath. How they breath with their belly. If you watch a baby sleep, their belly will go up and down more than their chest. They are completely relaxed and remembering exactly what their bodies needs. For so many reasons as we grow older, experience more demands and let lives ride take us to a forgetting place, our breathing becomes halted, short and misplaced. With this very simple exercise you can ease uncomfortable feelings and detox your body of unhealthy gases that build up due to not exhaling completely before you take another breath.
Very Simple: Stop what you are doing, so you can pay attention to exactly what you are doing. Start counting how long you are inhaling and exhaling. The secret is to exhale longer than you inhale. Count 1,2,3 to inhale and 1,2,3,4 to exhale. The numbers do not have to be exactly what I am saying, just as long as the exhale is longer. This will clear your body of pent up gases that get built up due to not exhaling properly. It is like a catch 22, we breathe wrong when we feel anxious and then the anxious breaths we are taking make us more anxious due to a chemical reaction. Try to do a total of 10 breaths and you should feel much better when you are done. In the future if this works for you, try to remember to sit down and fix your breath as soon as you feel a little anxiety, this will help you avoid full blown uncomfortable feelings of anxiety. Have a Happy Relaxed Afternoon.
