  • How To Relieve Stress & Anxiety - Breathing Techniques
    In today's fast-paced world, stress and anxiety have become common issues that many people struggle with on a daily basis. If you're looking for simple yet effective ways to reduce your anxiety instantly, then you're in the right place. In this article, we'll introduce you to three breathing techniques that you may not be familiar with but can help you find a sense of calm and relaxation. So, let's dive in!
    The first technique we will discuss is called cyclic sighing. Although sighing is often associated with feelings of sadness or frustration, when done in a controlled and specific manner, it can actually be a powerful tool for reducing stress and anxiety. To practice cyclic sighing, start by inhaling deeply through your nose until your lungs feel comfortably full. Then, take another quick sip of air through your nose to expand your lungs to their maximum capacity. Slowly exhale through your mouth until all the air is gone. Repeat this cycle for five minutes or for as long as you need.
    Researchers at Stanford, led by Dr. Andrew Huberman, a renowned neurobiologist and podcaster, conducted a study involving over 100 participants. These individuals were asked to dedicate five minutes per day to practicing various breathing exercises for a period of 30 days. Throughout the study, the participants wore fitness trackers and regularly reported their mood and anxiety levels. The results showed that while all the breathing techniques tested were effective in reducing anxiety, cyclic sighing stood out as the most efficient method. Just one sigh, as described earlier, was found to be the fastest way to lower stress levels in the short term. What's more, those who practiced cyclic sighing for five minutes a day experienced the greatest reduction in stress and anxiety throughout the day, even when they weren't actively engaging in the exercise. This translated to improved sleep quality and lower resting heart rates at all times of the day.
    Moving on to the second technique, we have the 4-7-8 breathing technique. This method, developed by Dr. Andrew Weil, is known for its ability to promote relaxation and calmness. To practice the 4-7-8 breathing technique, start by placing the tip of your tongue against the roof of your mouth, just behind the front teeth. Then, exhale completely through your mouth, making a whooshing sound. Close your mouth and inhale through your nose to a mental count of four. Hold your breath for a count of seven, and then exhale slowly through your mouth, again making a whooshing sound, to a count of eight. This completes one breath. Repeat this cycle three more times, for a total of four breaths.
    According to Dr. Weil, the 4-7-8 breathing technique works by slowing down your heart rate and promoting a state of relaxation. By extending the exhale time and controlling your breath, you activate the body's natural relaxation response. This technique can be particularly helpful in moments of intense anxiety or when you find yourself struggling to fall asleep. It's important to note that the 4-7-8 breathing technique may not be suitable for everyone, so it's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating it into your routine.
    Lastly, let's explore the third breathing technique - alternate nostril breathing. This ancient yogic practice is believed to balance the energy in the body and calm the mind. To practice alternate nostril breathing, start by sitting comfortably in a quiet space. Close your right nostril with your right thumb and inhale deeply through your left nostril. At the top of the inhalation, close your left nostril with your ring finger, release the right nostril, and exhale fully. Then, inhale through the right nostril, close it with your right thumb, and exhale through the left nostril. Repeat this cycle for several minutes, gradually extending the duration as you become more comfortable.
    Alternate nostril breathing can help alleviate stress and anxiety by engaging both sides of the brain and promoting a sense of balance. It is a wonderful technique to incorporate into your daily self-care routine, especially during times when you feel overwhelmed or in need of grounding.
    To conclude, breathing techniques can be incredibly powerful tools for reducing stress and anxiety. Whether it's through cyclic sighing, the 4-7-8 breathing technique, or alternate nostril breathing, these methods can help you find relief and restore a sense of calm in your daily life. Remember, it's essential to find the technique that works best for you and to practice regularly to reap the full benefits. So, take a deep breath, exhale, and embark on your journey towards a more peaceful and anxiety-free existence.
  • Subtitles section
  • Today we're going to show you how to instantly reduce your anxiety.
  • We'll do this by going over three breathing methods that you probably don't know about, but are right under your nose.
  • Let's jump right into it.
  • Method number one, cyclic sighing.
  • We associate sighing with feeling sad or frustrated, but sighing in a controlled and specific way can actually be one of the most effective ways to instantly reduce stress and anxiety in any situation.
  • Cyclic sighing involves breathing in through your nose until your lungs are comfortably full, and then taking another quick sip of air, also through your nose, to expand your lungs to maximum capacity.
  • You then slowly exhale through your mouth until all the air is gone, and repeat this for five minutes or however long you need.
  • Researchers at Stanford, including podcaster and neurobiologist Dr. Andrew Huberman, whose podcast taught me about cyclic sighing, recently conducted a study that tracked over 100 people and asked them to spend five minutes per day practicing different breathing exercises for 30 days.
  • The people in the study wore fitness trackers and regularly had to answer questions about their mood and anxiety levels.
  • The researchers found that all the breathing techniques they tested reduced anxiety, but cyclic sighing came out on top.
  • Doing only one sigh in the way that I just described was the fastest way to lower stress levels in the short term.
  • What's more, the participants in this study who did five minutes of cyclic sighing for 30 days also saw the greatest reduction in stress and anxiety around the clock, even when they weren't doing the exercise,
  • Which translates to improvement in sleep and lower resting heart rates at all times of the day.
  • Method number two, the 4-7-8 breathing technique.
  • The 4-7-8 method comes from yoga and has actually been around for thousands of years.
  • It was made popular recently by Andrew Weil, a practitioner of alternative medicine.
  • To practice the 4-7-8 method, find a quiet setting and sit with your back straight.
  • Keep the tip of your tongue pressed against the roof of your mouth just behind your upper teeth the whole time.
  • Get rid of all the air in your lungs, then close your mouth and breathe in through your nose for four seconds.
  • Then you hold your breath while counting to seven.
  • Afterwards, you breathe out hard enough to make a whooshing sound for eight seconds.
  • Dr. Weil recommends doing this four times in each session.
  • The idea is to deactivate what's known as your sympathetic nervous system and activate what's called your parasympathetic nervous system.
  • When your sympathetic nervous system is stimulated, you feel anxious.
  • Your breathing and heart rate speed up.
  • Activating your parasympathetic nervous system does the opposite and relaxes you.
  • Just how effective is this?
  • Well, a 2022 study by researchers in Thailand followed 43 adults and took various health measures before and after they performed the 4-7-8 exercise six times for three sets.
  • They found that participants' heart rates and blood pressure significantly improved immediately after the exercise, suggesting that they experienced a reduction in stress and anxiety.
  • And finally, method number three, box breathing.
  • Box breathing is another deep breathing technique you can do anywhere to reduce stress and anxiety.
  • It's called box breathing because you are encouraged to think of a box while doing it, and the name makes it easy to remember when you're under pressure.
  • The method involves taking a slow, deep breath through your nose while counting to four, and then holding your breath for four seconds, breathing out slowly through your mouth for four seconds, and then holding your breath again for another four seconds before repeating the entire process.
  • Do this for a few minutes or until you've reached a calm state.
  • Box breathing is popular amongst people who work in high-stress jobs, like soldiers, firefighters, and famously the US Navy SEALs, because it can take your body out of fight-or-flight mode and help you think more clearly in stressful situations.
  • However, anyone can use it to calm down and focus better when feeling anxious.
  • Just how effective is box breathing?
  • Well, a 2017 study found that people trained in box breathing had significantly less cortisol in their spit immediately after performing the exercise, suggesting that it reduced their stress levels.
  • Another 2023 study found that box breathing decreased participants' anxiety levels and boosted self-reported mood.
  • And there you have it.
  • These are three breathing techniques for reducing anxiety.
  • Not every method works for everyone, but try them out and let us know if any worked for you in the comments down below.
  • Besides that, stay tuned.
