Need instant stress relief? Deep breathing works.
Relaxation Practices that Reduce Stress shows you how:
“Sit comfortably with your back straight. Put one hand on your chest and the other on your stomach.
Breathe in through your nose. The hand on your stomach should rise. The hand on your chest should move very little.
Exhale through your mouth, pushing out as much air as you can while contracting your abdominal muscles. The hand on your stomach should move in as you exhale, but your other hand should move very little.
Continue to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Try to inhale enough so that your lower abdomen rises and falls. Count slowly as you exhale.”
Follow this routine, with your hand on your tummy, for at least three minutes. At the end of this time, you’ll feel much more relaxed. If you still feel stressed or anxious, breathe deeply for another three minutes.
You can follow this deep breathing routine anywhere — even when you’re in a supermarket checkout line, or are in your car.
