There's a link between our mood or emotions and how we breathe - when we're anxious or stressed, breathing often becomes short and tight. By deliberately breathing slowly into our lower bodies, we can reduce anxiety and calm stress.
This breathing method is sooo calming for me. Sometimes it may take me awhile to breathe this deeply and other times it seems natural. Thanks for your gentle guidance 🙏
I feel very relaxed and I’ve had a terrible day, I always forget to take deep breathes
It’s good to breathe and I sometimes forget to take deep breathes, and I need to throughout my day more
I felt that belly breathing really brought my attention back to the present moment and helped me slow down and calm down.
Deep Belly Breathing
I was tired this morning when I started this practice. As I was guided through the breathing, I realized that my breath was short and shallow and up in my shoulders. Thank you for helping my day start on a better note.
Take a moment to yourself, lay down, place your hands in your stomach and, with each deep breath you take, feel the rise of it; and when exhaling, feel your stomach being lowered. With each breath you take, you clear your head of unwanted and even unnecessary thoughts. So, just breathe deep, and be here.
This really helped. I always find myself breathing short breaths from stress and anxiety, this was a great exercise to bring me back to calmn
I woke up anxious
The breathing technique calmed me a bit. I’ll continue to try and see
I learned that belly breathings is relaxing and should be practiced more frequently.
This helped me start my day off with better breathing. I’m going to focus on taking deep belly breaths today when I need a minute to relax.
Free my mind for a while, just feel the moment while listening to calming sounds. Collect positive thoughts
I felt very calm and it started to give me sleep
I learned that you should take sometime to breath and feel how your belly rises and falls, normally we don't breath like that and we inhale not many air to fill our lungs
I loved it! Was amazing. I am not stress at all
I felt many feelings inside of me. It was hard at the beginning because I couldn’t focus my brain in the meditation, but then I got it.
Deep belly breath
Wow...this works great. I will practice this more during the day.
I notice to often that the Aura mediations picked for me seems to fit my need for that particular moment of my body nourishment
Training my brain
I felt like I was teaching myself how to breathe properly. And my body listened.
When I was stressed I didn’t know what to do then the next morning I went back to this app and their was already a video for and I was stressed relief so from now on I am coming here
I have been under a tremendous amount of stress lately, and this practice really helped me just slow my mind
It was nice to have a reminder to take a few minutes to breathe and a positive message to start the day with.
Deep belly breathing was more relaxing than just asking deep breaths - they were easier for me to control. It gave my brain something to focus on and helped pull that stress down and out of my shoulders and neck.
I felt that after the session my breathing was way more calm and I actually did feel better.
I learned a different type of relaxation exercise. It really does the trick.
I learned that I need to focus on relieving my stress and sugar. My blood sugar is going up. My stress is up.
This helped me
Today I will repair a relationship and stay focused on the present moment as much as possible.
I noticed that I don’t always breathe deeply
I learned to take the time to practice breathing helps steady the mind & body
It only takes a moment to shift energy!
Changing energy and
Mood is so very easy, but we so often don’t do it because feel rushed. One moment can shift everything.
I felt my mind would continue to race but I tried to just get back to my breathing. Meditation was better than no meditation. I just keep trying😊
It’s always good to pay attention to my breathing and in times of stress or any emotion I can go to my breathing
I realized I have trained my body to naturally take higher smaller breaths and when I forced the breath down today it wasn’t easy and didn’t feel natural, especially when I had to “poke” my belly out to take a deep breath.
When breath is high in your body
Breath can be carried high in my lungs. Try to breathe into my belly when this happens to help release pressure & anxiety
I rarely breath deeply so this has reminded me to stop and do deep breathing
I felt more relaxed deep breathing
It helped me to focus more on my breathing. Reminded me to slow down
I am struggling with health issues and I recognize a pattern that when my health gets bad my anxiety skyrockets and I get triggered by the smallest things. Setting aside time for breathwork and meditation really helps me manage my anxiety.
My energy shifted…this slowed me down and helped me to feel more open.
My first time doing this,
I learned that my anxiety was less afterwards. I will continue to do this each day to keep my anxiety levels down
I noticed that I rarely breath this deeply. I may have unused lung capacity I’m keeping in reserve.
From learning that anxiety is about deep caring
And that’s part of who I am
I noticed I don’t breathe as thoroughly and fulfilling-ly as I could!
I felt calmer, my mind a little more refreshed.
I can improve mood by breathing. I learnt it is ok to let mind wander and bring it back to breath. I smiled and laughed at a memory.
I feel calmer and my breathing is easier.
Belly breathing works for me in reducing my anxiety I will continue to do this to help get air into my lungs

Remember to be aware of my breath.
Helps you to also recognize how you are feeling. Witness how you are feeling don't react from it
Hard to follow
I know about deep breathing. So I just did the breathing exercises while listening.
My first session
I did feel a bit more relaxed after the exercise. I was also more aware of areas of pain and tension in my back and shoulders. They continued to hold my attention well after finishing.
Aware deep breathing
I found this very settling. Became more aware of the results throughout my body
I became more relaxed and felt like I could sleep well at nightt. This is a good way to get into meditation.
First Time w Aura
I was anxious beforehand, not planning to nourish my mental health this morning but then I saw the notification from aura. I remembered I did that for a reason so I went ahead and clicked on it even though I didn’t really feel like it. I got more anxious throughout the session but right towards the end, I felt much more calm and in control and astute.
When I would inhale deep the urge to cry would happen and I couldn’t calm down
I need to turn my brain off some how. I need to figure out how to make these feelings manageable so that I can function. I don’t have time for sudden panic attacks.
First time trying Aura. I was feeling anxious tonight. A little stressed from the day. Im learning the meditation to help me relax to sleep better.
I’m seriously learning about sleeping better
I’m seriously learning to sleep better because meditation is always helping me relax and stay calm and quiet while I sleep and feel refreshed and ready to start my day and I pray lord give me peace and quiet while I sleep somewhere inside is saying Margo you have to get some sleep because it’s important I meditate because I feel irritated during the day and sometimes we feel that way and meditation is all it takes and that is why I love it
Deep breathing always calms me down. & this session was no different. Laying down with hands on my belly, I could feel them rising & separating with every inhale & coming together as they fell with every exhale. Just calms me down immediately.
A useful tool for when I start to feel anxious.
