Simple Relaxation Technique. Master It!

Implementing a simple relaxation technique when feeling anxious or stressed can help you become more calm and centered in complex situations.  Here is a technique that is often taught by our therapists:

1. Place hand on belly.
2. Inhale for 5 seconds filling your belly up with air.
3. Hold your breath for 3 seconds.
4. Exhale for 5 seconds letting all of the air out of your belly.
5. Repeat to yourself  "calm now."
6. Do this as many times as needed to feel grounded.

Practice this technique and master it so that it can be utilized in any anxious or stressful situation that you may experience.
