Diaphragmatic breathing is a technique which can help you relax, fall asleep and feel calmer when you are feeling stress and anxiety. In this video, Psychologist Emma Kenny shows us how to do this breathing technique and suggests when we could be using it.
How do I do diaphragmatic breathing?
Breath down to your tummy so it pushes your tummy out when you breath in.
Breath through your nose and out through your mouth.
You can do this to a count of breathing in for the count of 5 and out for the count of 5. Alternatively you can get even more of an effect if you breath in for 4, hold for 7 and then breath out very slowly to a count of 8.
