Relaxation techniques: Breath control helps quell errant stress response - Harvard Health - Deepstash
Deep Breathing Practice

Deep breathing encourages full oxygen exchange, slows the heartbeat and lowers/stabilizes blood pressure. This is specifically so when we engage our abdomen in our breathing practice.

Steps for Deep Breathing Practice:

  1. Find a quiet, comfortable place to sit or lie down.
  2. Take a normal breath. Then try a deep breath.
  3. Breathe in slowly through your nose, allowing your chest and lower belly to rise as you fill your lungs. Let your abdomen expand fully.
  4. Now breathe out slowly through your mouth (or your nose, if that feels more natural).
