Do you experience headaches, tension, or difficulty breathing when you are stressed? You are not alone. Oftentimes stress and strong emotions can put a strain on the way we breathe – whether it manifests as shortness of breath or panicked breathing. This form of stress breathing can make it hard for new air to enter our lungs. Why do we want to prevent this? When we breathe we have control. Deep breathing slows down the natural rhythms of the body and the mind, making our bodies feel like they do when they are already calm and relaxed. This can help us gather ourselves and clear our minds.
