Breathing Exercises to manage stress

Unfortunately, stress and worry are fairly widespread in today’s society, and they can cause physical symptoms including headaches, muscle tension, and trouble sleeping. In addition to medicine and therapy, including breathing exercises in your regular routine can help you manage stress and enhance your general wellbeing.
Here are two stress-reduction breathing techniques with scientific support:
breathing 4–8

Close your eyes and place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth, just behind your front teeth.
Breathe in quietly through your nose for 4 counts.
Hold your breath for 7 counts.
Exhale slowly through your mouth for 8 counts.
This pattern should be repeated 4-5 times.

Alternate Nostril Breathing
Close your right nostril with your right thumb.
Breathe in slowly and deeply through your left nostril.
Close your left nostril with your right ring finger and release your thumb from your right nostril.
Exhale slowly through your right nostril.
Repeat this pattern, breathing in through the opposite nostril each time.
Practising these exercises regularly and making them a part of your daily routine will yield the best results, so let’s get started!
