Here is a simple breathing exercise that’s incredibly easy to do and can be done anywhere!

Just stop whatever you’re doing, and relax. Then take in a slow, deep breath for 5 seconds, and then exhale slowly and completely for 7 seconds. By exhaling longer than you are inhaling, you will more completely empty your lungs and push out all the stale air that tends to stick around if you are a shallow breather. Breath like this for several minutes and you will feel yourself start to relax and send stress packing.
