10-second breathing technique

  This is an easy and handy relaxation technique called “10-second breathing technique.” 
 As you may have guessed, it can be done in 10 seconds.

Procedure:
1. Close your eyes and exhale all the air out of your body.
2. Inhale through your nose as you count 1 to 3.
3. Hold at 4.
4. Exhale slowly through your pursed lips from 5 to 10.
The key to this breathing is:
1. To focus on your exhaling, rather than on inhaling.
2. Exhale slowly and gently as if you were blowing a bubble.
3. Abdominal breathing provides a deeper breathing.
