BREATHE DEEPLY TEN TIMES

sky-114446_960_720

During moments of stress, my go-to coping mechanism is deep breathing. It re- oxygenates all my vital organs and creates a small and often useful break from whatever is upsetting me. I’ve learned to breathe quietly so no one notices what I’m doing. I often advise my mental health patients to use this technique, and they report that it’s helpful. The next time you’re overwhelmed and distressed, try breathing deeply to see if it makes you feel better.
