In the UK, a little over 1 in 10 of us will be living with an anxiety disorder at any one time – that’s over 8 million people. But everyone’s experience of anxiety disorders is different. Not everyone who has an anxiety disorder will experience the same symptoms.
Breathing for Anxiety by
Breathing is a very powerful tool and gift. When we become triggered it affects our entire nervous system. We begin to only breath in the top portion of our lungs. Using you breath to fully and slowly expand your lungs again totally regulates the nervous system again. Stopping the digestive response and the physical symptoms of anxiety. Regulating our heart rate and returning our mind to its relaxed left hemisphere activity.
When we are triggered we operate of the right, survival side…. Hence the catastrophying negative overthinking…the halt of digestive activity and resulting nausea…the raised heart rate as believe we’re under threat due to overwhelm.
Your breath can be used to heal all anxieties by practice of its use whilst confronting those fears. Completely rewiring your nervous reaction through practice.
This may resonate with some people, but then again it may not.
I was walking up to the shops and I could feel that nervousness feeling in my stomach. Yep we know what’s happening.
Walking back the stomach feeling started to rise and I could feel the shakes inside. So then I said yes it is happening and acknowledged it.
I put a smile on my face, walked up straight and took a deep breathe in and let it out slowly. I repeated this a few times as I walked home and all the while I kept smiling and told my self that you got this, you are in control, the emotions you feel are not in control.
Five minutes pass by and so did the anxiety. Just something that may help someone
