Studies show that simple breathing techniques can improve emotional control and promote psychological well-being.
Begin in a comfortable position, such as lying on your back.
Breathe in through your nose and feel your stomach rise.
Slowly exhale through your nose and feel your stomach fall.
Repeat slow intentional breaths 10 times.
This may seem very simple, but give it a try. When you finish, give yourself a quick scan. Does your mind seem more relaxed? Has your body released tension?
