Join me for a quick breathing exercise to help you during times of stress or anxiety. We focus on breathing in, holding the breath, breathing out, and holding the breath for a count of 4. This exercise is also known as "box" or "square" breathing. Notice how you feel at the beginning and end of the exercise to discover any changing feelings or emotions.

Square Breathing
A good exercise that can be done anywhere, I will take this with me everyday and will embed it into my routines as it is a valuable tool to help me in high stress times
4 count breath
I learnt that breathing is disturbed. It’s had to hold my breath for long.
