Calm Breathing

Calm breathing is a technique that helps you slow down your breathing when feeling stressed or anxious.

♦ Our breathing changes when we are feeling anxious. We tend to take short, quick, shallow breaths, or even hyperventilate; this is called “overbreathing"

♦ It is a good idea to learn techniques for managing “overbreathing”, because this type of breathing can actually make you feel even more anxious (e.g., due to a racing heart, dizziness, or headaches)

♦ Calm breathing is a great portable tool that you can use whenever you are feeling anxious. However, it does require some practice

For some people, March Break is not much of a break! Don't forget that there are simple things that you can do every day to manage your stress and help get through those difficult days.
