Stress Hack: Need a Quick Fix from Stress?

  1. Sit in a chair and get comfortable with good posture.
  2. Place one hand on your chest and the other hand on your diaphragm (just above yourstomach).
  3. Spend a moment concentrating on your breath and notice how your body naturally breathes.
  4. Now bring your shoulders back slightly. By bringing your shoulders back slightly (with no strainon the neck), you open up your heart to receive more oxygen and blood flow.
  5. Practice paying attention to your breathing. When you inhale, your belly expands; when youexhale, your belly goes in and pushes out oxygen.6)Practice two to three slow inhales and exhales. As you get better at this exercise, spend moretime at each sitting. SOURCE
