Breathing to calm anxiety

Breathing to Calm Anxiety

1. Breathe in for 4 seconds
2. Hold your breath for 7 seconds
3. Exhale breath for 8 seconds
4. Repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.
