And Breathe …

Here are three exercises you can use:

Inhale in to the count of 2, exhale to the count of 4 – do this 10 times.

Inhale to the count of 1, exhale to the count of 2, inhale to the count of 2, exhale to the count of 3, inhale to the count of 3, exhale to the count of 4, inhale to the count of 4, exhale to the count of 5. Repeat exercise 3 times

This box breathing exercise is helpful if you’re feeling particularly anxious:
Inhale for a count of 4, hold your breath for a count of 4, exhale for a count of 4, wait at the very end of the exhale for a count of 4, and repeat 5 times.
