Deep Breathing Exercises: How-To

Breathing exercises are a simple practice that you can use regularly or every once in a while.

  • Inhale deeply, slowly, (over a span of about 4 seconds), through your nose
  • Hold it for a count of 16 seconds
  • Exhale through your mouth, (over a span of about 8 seconds)
  • Repeat this process nine times.

It’s important that this be a conscious activity for maximum effect. Remember to consciously control your body’s responses. For example, if you’re trying to relax your muscles, then you need to focus on the individual muscles telling them to relax. Often tension is an automatic response that turns into a state of being and you have to remind your muscles how to behave.
