Ex­hale Your Wor­ries

Reader's Digest (Canada) - - Cover Story -

When you’re over­whelmed, Thring rec­om­mends a sim­ple breath­ing ex­er­cise called box breath­ing to slow down your mind and help you feel more in con­trol. Here’s how:

In­hale for a count of four, hold for four sec­onds, then ex­hale for four and hold again for four sec­onds be­fore start­ing again. Re­peat this for two min­utes, work­ing your way up to longer spans of time as needed.
