Belly Breathing

When you’re faced with stressful situations, an effective way to calm down is by practicing deep abdominal breathing, sometimes called “belly breath.” It works by stimulating your body’s natural relaxation response, which helps relieve muscle tension as well as lower your heart rate and blood pressure. By focusing your thoughts on the sensations of breathing, or even counting your breaths, you also help settle your mind.
