Breathing is kind of important. Beside the fact that you might be doing it wrong, it can also be really helpful for stress relief.

Enter the 4-7-8 technique by Dr. Andrew Weil:

  • breathe in for a 4 count
  • hold for a 7 count
  • exhale for an 8 count

Start with 4 cycles. Never exceed 8 cycles in one sitting.

Breathe using your gut, not your shoulders.

In. Hold. Out. Relax.
