Feeling Stressy? Try 'Box Breathing'
Sometimes, we all need a bit of a breather. Having a wobbly moment and feeling anxious or stressed is an indication to step back, get centred, and focus on the present moment instead of giving our attention to the past or future.
The Box Breathing technique is so useful that it’s used by Navy Sea, Air, and Land Teams in stressful situations! Here's how to do it:
1) Breathe in slowly, counting to four
2) Hold your breath for four seconds
3) Exhale through your mouth for four seconds
4) Repeat steps 1 to 3 as much as needed!
