Breathing Exercise Number 5

The current covid-19 crisis has understandably got many of us feeling stressed and anxious. One of things that we can all do to combat this whilst in lockdown is to try some breathing exercises, designed to help us relax, ease anxiety and clear our minds.

Over the next few days, we will be uploading 7 breathing exercises you can do at home, which you can turn to, to try and ease any anxiety brought on by the crisis.

The fifth exercise is called as resonant breathing, and has been known to calm people down in a matter of minutes. The trick it to breath slowly, 6 seconds for every inhale, and the same for the exhale. The key is to not fill your lungs too full of air, and not to exhale forcefully, but very slowly. Do this for 10 minutes, then return to normal breathing.
