Breathing Exercise Number 7

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 final breathing exercise is known as alternate nostril breathing. Pinch one nostril closed with your thumb and breathe in slowly. Hold your breath for a moment, then use your pointing finger to close the other nostril and exhale through the one that was previously closed. Repeat this technique, alternating between nostrils up to 10 times.
