Mass Shouting in Las Vegas. Flooding in Texas. Hurricanes. A risk of war with North Korea. There are many reasons for anxiety! Yet there are even more reasons to nip anxiety in the bud and not to allow it to mess up your breathing, your health and your life.
This breathing exercise is helpful for anyone who suffers from anxiety - a condition, which is driven by hyperventilation. When a person is anxious, he or she is caught up in their thoughts and their breathing becomes shallow making the chest move. To stop anxiety, it is important to normalize breathing and move this disturbing energy down, transforming it into a feeling of stability and being grounded.
Today, I'd like to offer you a breathing exercise, which I call The Oak Tree. While doing this exercise, remember to avoid any mouth breathing as well as heavy or noisy breathing. Breathe Peace!
