Stress and tension are common these days, and finding ways to calm down and relax is very important to our physical and mental health. One of the most effective ways of achieving this goal is breathing exercise, which plays an essential role in regulating our physiology and can have a great impact on our state of mind.

Here are some breathing exercises that can help us calm down:

Breathing and counting:

Sit or lie down in a comfortable place and close your eyes. Start breathing in slowly and deeply through your nose until you count four. Hold your breath for a short time and then exhale smoothly through your mouth until you count four again. Repeat this exercise several times, focusing entirely on your breathing and counting.

Diaphragmatic breathing:

Sit with your back straight or lie on it. Place one hand on your chest and the other hand - on your stomach. Breathe in slowly and deeply through your nose, feeling that you are breathing into your belly, not your chest. Then gradually exhale through your mouth, driving away the air from your abdomen. This type of breathing will help you relax and release tension.

Visualized breathing:

Close your eyes and imagine that you are taking in light and peace with each breath. As you breathe out, visualize yourself breathing out tension and negative emotions. Keep on breathing in this rhythm until you feel peaceful and relaxed.

Alternate nostrils:

Close your right nostril with your right thumb and inhale through the left nostril. Then close the left nostril with the pinkie finger of your left hand and exhale through the right nostril. Carry on breathing in and out through different nostrils in a rhythm, concentrating on your breathing and the sensations that come with each breath.

These breathing exercises are easy to perform and can be practiced anywhere and any time when we need a little peace and quiet and relaxation. Practicing these exercises regularly can help reduce stress and anxiety levels and make you feel more relaxed and freshened up.
