Mediation + Breathing

Deep Breathing

Deep Breathing is a very helpful form of meditation. It focuses on each breath that is inhaled and exhaled. Deep breathing meditation is used to reduce anxiety, stress, and symptoms of
depression.

Square Breathing

Square breathing is a great method to calm someone with anxiety. It is used by inhaling and holding a breath, and exhaling and holding a breath. By doing this your body is forced to focus on the slow, easy breaths and in return calms your racing heart, dizziness, and fast breathing .
