Deep breathing 7/11
A simple but powerful technique that is easy to learn. It has immediate beneficial effect.
- From deep in the pit of the stomach breathe in for 7 seconds and then breathe out for 11 seconds.
- Do this 5, 6, 7 times and see the reaction.
Inhaling triggers one part of our nervous system which creates arousal and exhaling stimulates a relaxation response. By breathing out more than breathing in you trigger the relaxation response over the arousal response.
