When we’re stressed or anxious, our breathing becomes more rapid and shallow. This in turn, makes us feel even worse—triggering symptoms such as dizziness, light-headedness, and shortness of breath. This deep breathing exercise helps you slow your breathing down and relax both physically and mentally. It’s simple to learn and, best of all, it’s something you can easily practice any time and anywhere.
