- Fighting Fear
Most of the time stress and anxiety comes from being afraid of something. When this happens, it can cause tension, and this can cause you to breathe wrong. Instead of shallow breathing, you need to let your body start deep breathing. Breathing helps your brain to function and when you get scared, your brain can turn to fight or flight. This can cause you to panic or to be dreadful of what is to come.
Avoid this by breathing the right way. If you need to, meditate while you breathe and then inhale with a count of four and exhale with a count of eight. This will stimulate nerves in your brain such as the Vagus nerves.
