Pursed lip breathing

This simple technique is designed to slow down the pace of your breathing; to make it more intentional and efficient. It is a powerful tool that relaxes the body and mind to help you manage stress and anxiety, in any situation.

How to do it:
- Relax your neck and keep your shoulders down.
- With your mouth closed, breathe in slowly through your nose for 2-4 seconds.
- Pucker your lips like you are going to whistle.
- Breathe out slowly to a count of 4.

Diaphragmatic breathing

Diaphragmatic breathing strengthens your diaphragm which is an important muscle for deep breathing. It also reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and makes a real difference to your wellbeing - both physically and mentally.

How to do it:
- Sit or lie flat on your back.
- Relax your shoulders.
- Put one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen.
- Inhale through your nose and count to two.
- Purse your lips, press gently on your stomach, and exhale slowly for about two seconds.
- Repeat three to five times.
