Belly Breathing

When we are stressed our autonomic nervous system (ANS) speeds up. This causes our heart rate to increase, our breathing to quicken and we can feel numb or tingling sensations in our body. Belly breathing is a technique to slow down your autonomic nervous system (ANS) and directly tackle these symptoms. This technique involves breathing from the diaphragm using a skill called 3:4 breathing, where you breathe in for a count of 3, hold for 1, and breathe out for a count of 4.

You will find various belly breathing options in the relaxation and mindfulness section of the website, including different voice options and music only versions.
