Anxiety, panic, and stress can affect you very quickly. Using this quick, 4-7-8 breathing exercise can help you relax your central nervous system. In this practice, we inhale for the count of 4, hold for 7, and then breathe out for the count of 8. Practicing this exercise once a day may help keep you relaxed, alert, and ready to handle uncomfortable situations.
