Release Anxiety with the 4-7-8 Breath
Happy New Year! I took a break from work, social media, and news and it was so relaxing. I hope you were able to find some moments of peace too.
I had planned on sharing something different this week but the events at the Capitol here in the U.S. yesterday reminded me of the 4-7-8 breath for anxiety and the video I created for you last year.
This breath is amazing for helping with anxiety.
You inhale for a count of 4.
Hold for a count of 7.
Exhale for a count of 8.
The longer exhales tell the central nervous system to calm down a bit.
Watch the video to do the breath live with me for 1 minute.
This is nice at bedtime or anytime you are feeling anxious or worried It really helps release anxiety in the moment.
I also created a printable in case you want a visual reminder to do this breath. Click here or the image above to get yours!
