Seven - Eleven Breathing

Just as anxiety can affect our breathing, we can use our breathing to control the anxiety.

Breathing is something we can take control of easily, even though we do it unconsciously all our lives. The simplest way is to practise 7-11 breathing. It allows us to centre and calm ourselves.

Ensure that you are not wearing clothing that is too tight, that might restrict your chest and abdomen.

Now empty your lungs of any stale air - breathe out completely

Pause a moment and repeat the process three or four times, starting with the seven second inhalation.

You can start to notice the change in your feelings very quickly. The more you practise 7-11 breathing, the easier it will become.  

Use it a few times a day or whenever you need to.
