  1. Stand Up Straight - Good posture enables your body to breathe properly on its own
  2. Follow Your Breath - This focuses on the motions and movements of each inhale and exhale flowing through the body
  3. Abdominal Breathing - This is through breathing with your stomach and chest
  4. Rhythmic Breathing - Often recommended for anxiety patients
  5. Alternate Nostrils - This is breathing through the nostrils alternately in rhythm

  • The power of breathing is evident with people who have breathing disorders. As emotions affect our well-being, so does our breathing.
  • Our parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems are in control of producing feelings of calmness and the latter, the body's rapid involuntary response to stressful situations.
  • Many studies have confirmed the effects of breathing techniques against anxiety, stress, and insomnia. Although they do not disappear entirely, it helps alleviate their symptoms.
  • It is a popular technique that promotes relaxation by coordinating our breathing, slowly and steadily, with our heart rate, stabilizing the heartbeat.
  • There are many versions to cardiac coherence: 5-second inhale-exhale for a 5-minute repetition or 4-second inhale 6-second exhale cycle.
  • Cardiac coherence’s stabilization of the heartbeat can dampen anxiety powerfully.
