Why It's Important
When you're overwhelmed, it can be difficult to focus on anything other than your nervous energy, much less figure out how to overcome it. Even breathing exercises can sometimes cause you to become even more agitated. Holding your nose to do alternate nostril breathing can be embarassing and remembering to count while trying to prolong your breath can sometimes overwhelm you even more.
The key to soothing this distress (especially if your anxiety flareups are random) is a quick grounding exercise. One that's super easy to do.
