Health: Breath to Destress 

Have you ever felt stressed at work? It’s no wonder since we all have lots of responsibility at work — in addition to all of the stress from our personal life that we bring into work. 

What if there was an easy way to de-stress that you could do almost anywhere at any time? Luckily, there is: Breathing. 

This simple breathing exercise below can help you relax, de-stress and concentrate. Here’s how to do it: 

  • Breathe in through your nose and let your belly fill with air. 
  • Imagine that the air is filled with a sense of calm and peace. Imagine that peacefulness entering your entire body. 
  • Now, breathe out through your nose and feel your belly lower. 
  • Take three more full, deep breaths, and breathe fully into your belly as it rises and falls with your breath. 

 

Questions

  • Do you have a few one-minute periods in your day to perform a breathing exercise? 
  • What are your stress triggers at work? What kind of events or situations make you feel anxious or upset? 
  • Can you use a breathing exercise to stay calm before, during or after a stressful event to stay calm?
