Using Breathing Techniques to Handle Your Anxiety


“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” 
― Amit Ray

We all experience stress during a normal day. It comes and goes—the rush to get out the door in the morning, the stress of how kids are doing at school or in activities, the deadlines at work. Stress and a rollercoaster of emotions for the day, the news, the world—it’s part of life.

But sometimes stress can take over that very natural of body responses—breathing. Anxiety, anger, sadness: All those emotions hold the power to make it difficult for us to breathe in a natural way. And that feeling—of the breath being out of control—can quickly translate into an elevated heart rate and other negative physical feelings.

But there are steps that you can take to help calm your breathing and return this body process to normal. They don’t take any training or equipment, and rarely take more than a minute or two. Use this graphic to find out and get started.
