Whenever I am starting to feel stressed, I do box breathing.
Used primarily by people in high stress jobs such as police and soldiers, this breathing technique has helped me center and relax in times of chaos.
1. Choose the number of seconds to use (I usually play around 5-10)
2. Inhale for x (your number in step 1)
3. Hold for x
4. Exhale for x
5. Hold for x
6. Do it for about 5-10 times
That’s it. Notice how your emotional state changes.
Have fun and be happy!
