Calming activity – deep breathing

Deep breathing (diaphragmatic breathing) is great to practice because it enables more air to flow into our body which can then help make us feel calm, less anxious or stressed. Deep breathing makes us less anxious. We bet you did not know either that it helps with attention and lowers pain levels!

Trying the above calming technique takes only a few minutes and can be done anywhere. However, if you want to get more benefit from it, practice it regularly and do it as part of your daily routine. Even try it as a family! The beauty of this technique is that you can do it standing up, sitting down or even lying on your bed or floor.

Make sure you are comfortable and loosen any clothing that restricts your breathing. Relax and enjoy! See how much better you feel afterwards!
