BREATHE!

Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing

A powerful tool that you have where ever you go!  Feeling anxious, depressed, angry, in pain?  Pull this tool out of your toolbox and find some balance!  If you begin to feel light-headed slow down and breathe at your normal rate.  Then when you are ready, take three deep diaphragmatic breathes and notice your body/mind.  You are engaging the Para-Sympathetic Nervous system which is the other side of the Sympathetic Nervous system known more commonly as the fight or flight response.  It is like a switch in your body.  Both do not operate at the same time so having this tool can change your life from anxiety and fear to a calmer space.  No guarantees about everything going away, but it can be very helpful!
