Everyone faces stresses in their life. If stress occurs too often or for too long, it can start to take a toll on our physical and emotional well-being. How we cope with our stress can make all the difference. Slowing down and deepening your breathing can help you calm down when you feel stress building. Paced breathing exercises are easy to learn and use. Paced breathing can be remarkably effective in helping manage stress and insomnia, as well as, focusing the mind, and improving health.
