Deep breathing exercises

Use deep breathing exercises to relax your body:

  • Sit somewhere comfortable with a straight back
  • Close your eyes and begin breathing through your nose
  • Breathe in for a count of two.
  • Hold your breath for a count of one
  • Breathe out through your mouth for a count of four. The key is to exhale longer than you inhale.
  • Hold your breath for one second and then repeat.
