How much do you think about breathing? Have you ever noticed how deep do you breathe, how fast, and how heavy? These are things that sometimes just pop in my head and then I think ”wow, have I really been breathing that heavily for a while?”
When it comes to dealing with stress and anxiety, there are so many self defense mechanisms that we go into when we are feeling anxious or stressed. Today I want to share some GIFS that help me become more calm and follow it to breathe in as deep as possible..
GIFS for deep breathing
Choose which GIFS you like the best, save them on the phone and have them with you at any time. Especially at times when feeling stressed, follow the GIF and try to make the mind feel more at peace. I know that I have been struggling with anxiety a lot, and sometimes it feels like nothing helps and it will consume every part of me. I’ve got books, meditation, but this seems to help ground myself.
How Deep Breathing Helps
Here are some of the benefits of deep breathing:
– Calming effect
– De stress the body and mind
– Feel energized
– Heart starts to beat slower
– Blood pressure decreases
How long do I have to do it for the benefits of deep breathing?
According to the article on stress.org one should make deep breathing as a habit, and practice it daily for about 20 to 30 minutes. The easiest way is to practice it the same time every day, for example in the morning. That would help start the morning in a more mindful way, and have a calm start.
