How often do you hear “Take a deep breath” from your friends, family, and colleagues each week? If your answer is “quite a few times,” you are likely stressed, anxious, and panicked, and you may not know how to relax or de-stress. Here’s a simple solution to your problems: deep breathing meditation.
What is deep breathing meditation? It involves holding your breath, feeling it fill your lungs, and then slowly exhaling through your mouth to release the air. Repeating this exercise allows the slow, relaxing breath to permeate your entire body, gradually releasing stress.
