Deep Breathing Technique

My favorite breathing technique that is most effective for relieving stress and promoting relaxation is called, The Deep Breathing Technique.

Other names for this technique are diaphragmatic breathing, abdominal breathing, and balloon breathing.

This technique emphasizes on the full use of the diaphragm and is also an easy exercise for those looking to relieve stress, and control the anxiety they feel on a daily basis.

The deep breathing technique, when practiced regularly, will help create the automatic breathing response that is needed during stressful events and situations. It is useful in promoting a calm mind and body.

Since stress, and anxiety produce breathing patterns that usually result in shallow breathing there is no question why the mind and body begin to feel so poorly. Both under-breathing and over-breathing produce physical symptoms that are anxiety provoking. The deep breathing technique is used to help you balance out your breathing and restore the natural breathing method you were born with.

When you become used to this technique and feel you have mastered it, you can pretty much do it anywhere, at anytime. Many people use this method while at work sitting at their desk.

Remember, deep breathing is mindful breathing. Be sure to focus on your breathing when you are doing it. Imagine yourself breathing out all the stress inside of you when you exhale and then imagine yourself breathing in peace and calm upon taking new breaths. A little visualization goes a long way!
