Think about the last time you were triggered, for example, by your partner. How well did you respond and how did that impact on you and your relationship? Wouldn’t it be great if you had a technique that would help to calm you down and defuse the argument so you can calmly work through your differences?

Decrease stress and increase positive relationships by taking deep breaths. This post will describe the importance of deep breathing and provide one breathing technique to support you to do this.

You can decrease your anxiety, stress, and worry, in an instant without seeing a Doctor or Therapist and it’s FREE, by taking slow deep breaths.

The breath is the first and last thing we do in life, and without it, we would not survive. The breath is considered life force energy; it gives us life.

Breathing is an unconscious activity of the body. However, we do have the ability to control it consciously. Unfortunately, the average person has become used to shallow breathing and only takes in a fraction of air for their lungs, and this includes people who are physically fit. Ideally, people would inhale enough air to fill their lung capacity.

People’s breathing becomes more shallow and rapid when they are stressed. Shallow breathing causes carbon dioxide to drop in your blood stream, and if this drops too low, it causes your blood vessels to constrict throughout your body.

As a result, you may notice when you are under stress, your speech becomes faster, your thoughts become more muddled, and if this continues for a while, you can develop a headache and become dizzy. When you’re stressed and worrying, shallow breathing further negatively impacts on your mental and physical well-being.

Do not underestimate the importance of deep breathing when it comes to managing stress, worry, fear, and anxiety. Breathing slowly and deeply releases endorphins and allows the life force energy to enter your body (instead of blocking it) and it instantaneously relieves your stress, calms your mind, and relaxes your body. So, if you want to decrease stress increase positive relationships, the following technique is quick to master.

Deep Breathing Technique

  1. Adjust your posture by pushing your shoulders back to open up your throat and chest to allow more air.
  2. Scan your body for any tension.
  3. Imagine your lungs go all the way down to your abdomen, and you have to fill the bottom of your lungs with oxygen first.
  4. Notice your breath as you slowly breathe in through your nose, and you begin to fill your lungs with oxygen, and your stomach expands (do not raise your shoulders or expand your chest).
  5. Hold your breath for one second and send the oxygen to the extremities of your body (hands, feet, and head).
  6. Slowly breathe out of your mouth.
  7. As you breathe out the stale air, feel the tension and stress leave your body.
  8. Repeat this process a few times. Rescan your body for tension and continue if required.

Anxiety is the feeling of excitement but without the breath. If you want to instantly turn your feeling of anxiety into excitement, breathe deeply!

The next time you feel stressed, worried, fearful or anxious, notice your breathing, and you will probably realize your breathing is shallow and rapid. Remember your deep breathing technique; it doesn’t take long to master – decrease stress increase positive relationships by taking time out to pause and breathe deeply.
