Deep Breaths

No matter how many of those bad days are back to back, you need to remember this doesn’t represent the sum of your life.

Speaking of taking a deep breath … this is a good method fr when you find yourself having a panic or anxiety attack (which many people tell me they have experienced related to poverty-induced stress).

  • breath in for 4 seconds

  • hold your breath for 7 seconds

  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.
