Relaxation Technique

Do this for at least 3 breaths.

Fear and anxiety are normal responses to what your mind perceives as a threat.  This is called the fight or flight response.  It is about keeping you safe.  Which isn’t so great when fear disrupts your ability to go places, do your job, maintain relationships, and do the things you love.  Learn some relaxation techniques to help you through the rough spots.

This is a technique you can do any where, any time.  Put your feet flat on the floor and straighten your spine.  Breath slowly.  Try to make your exhalation and inhalation the same length.  In through your nose and blow it out gently through your mouth.  Do this for at least 3 breaths.  More if you need.  If you are in a place you can close your eyes, do so.  Try it now.  How do you feel?
