Diaphragmatic Breathing: A breathing technique to relieve anxiety or stress
Have you ever noticed struggling to breathe when you're under stress or anxiety? And a sudden feeling that tight on your chest out of nowhere?
One practice I always say to people when I hear these things is, you should take a deep breath. This may sound like a simple thing, but this actually helps a thousand times.
Imagine when you breathe, you breathe up to your chest level. By doing this, you expand your chest as your lungs fill up with air.
Today, I want to share a tool called Diaphragmatic Breathing ~ where the large muscle runs out and separates the guts from the lungs. You can feel it when you put your hand on the top of your abdomen. Then imagine pushing this out as if you’re blowing up a balloon. The impact would be better when you try it by closing your eyes because you can really focus.
Diaphragmatic Breathing allows you to get oxygen back into your brain and get back to yourself, and what you’re dealing with at that moment. Also, you tend to be in control again as the feedback loop is sent back to your brain.
So things like anxiety, stress, being overwhelmed, and out of control can be spiral downwards. But some people might be experiencing serious issues like anxiety without knowing it. And this could be you.
Bottom line is, Diaphragmatic Breathing is the perfect tool that you can use anywhere, anytime, and immediately if you feel the need to. The unconscious or subconscious loop brings back control over your mind which can take you to focus on what you’re doing.
Moreover, when you feel out of control or out of breath and notice that when your chest tightens up, you feel it is difficult to take a deep breath. But with Diaphragmatic Breathing, you will find it easy to practice deep breathing.
