Learn diaphragmatic breathing to manage stress, reduce anxiety, and focus yourself.
And you also know that when you are stressed or anxious your breathing changes.
The stress response developed to help us cope with marauding tigers, but it also switches on when we're confronted with an angry boss, screaming kids, orthat lookfrom our partner.
It would be great to have a handle we could use to ramp stress down - something influenced by stress but over which we also have clear conscious control.
This course provides instruction in four-stage breathing, an exercise designed to activate the diaphragm, enhance awareness of the distinction between diaphragmatic and intercostal breathing, and provide a strategy you can use to enhance your control over the stress response.
You'll get a series of twelve brief lectures, plus downloadable PDF text material on diaphragmatic breathing exercises and how to link your practice to stressful situations.
