Breathe Deep

Anxious? Frustrated? Ready to throttle your bunker mates?

Breathe deep. Really, it works.  Here at hoohoo headquarters we practice daily, especially at bedtime.

Taking a deep breath short circuits the mind-body connection, and it's one of the easiest practices you can do to reduce feelings of anxiety and worry.  

 

The most effective breathing technique for this is simply counting:

4 Counts INHALE (through your nose)

7 Counts HOLD IT

8 Counts EXHALE (through your mouth)

~ Repeat this cycle 4-6 times ~

The 4-7-8 method can immediately calm and help create some peace by chilling out your body’s natural fight-or-flight response.
