Doesn’t it feel like we always have the thinnest will to manage our breathing when we’re stressed, and someone utters something to the effect of: “Take a breath”? In moments of tension, something as automatic and necessary as breathing can become a challenge that adds to whatever is stressing us out at that moment.
Get That Air In
The flip side is that learning to manage our breathing patterns can not only be improved as a challenge but in fact, could help to work in tandem with our stress to help alleviate it.
