Here I will show you my all time favorite breathing technique for a panic attack. If you know me, you'll know I am hands on. I don't want someone to tell me what to do, I like to try it for myself. That is how I learn, by feeling and experiencing. Show me a breathing technique and I have to try it right away to see how it feels in my body and see if I feel different after it.
Give yourself the next five minutes to relax.
I want you to experience this breathing technique for yourself.
Take a moment to scan yourself and see how you feel.
How intense or stressed do I feel?
What is on my mind?
Is there any pain or tension?
Don't dwell here, simply register it as if you are an objective witness.
Now, push play and close your eyes. I'll explain it all.
Thank you so much for listening!
