Breathe to Relax

Next time you feel stressed, try this breathing exercise to help you relax. Inhale through your nose, then slowly exhale through your mouth. As you exhale, make a long sighing sound as you do. Repeat three or four times. This exercise relaxes you by decreasing your blood pressure and stress-hormone levels and bringing more oxygen to your heart and brain.
