Types Of Breathing Exercises

  • The most common and effective breathing exercise is to breathe in (inhale) for four seconds and then breathe out(exhale) for about eight seconds, for a few minutes. Lengthening our exhales reduces agitations, calming us down.
  • There are several deep breathing programs like SKY Breath Meditation, mindfulness-based stress reduction (being aware of each moment without judgement) and others which are highly impactful and need to be studied in detail to get the full benefits.
