Breathe Deeply

Breathe Deeply

The problem: Your day has been stressful. You’re about to go into another meeting, but you’re feeling low on energy.

Why it works: Stress makes for rapid breathing, which can decrease the oxygen supply to the brain.

How to use it: Whenever you feel a dip in your energy, put the tip of your tongue behind your upper teeth. Inhale through your nose for four counts. Hold the breath for seven counts, then exhale for eight counts.
