The Power of Our Breath

I learnt a powerful breathing exercise from the well-known British physician, author, television presenter and podcaster, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, which I would like to share with you.

This breathing technique can help you calm down when you’re feeling anxious or stressed. 

Dr. Chatterjee calls it the 3-4-5 breath.

All you need to do is to breathe in for three seconds, hold your breath for four seconds, and breathe out for five seconds. 

Just do a few rounds or extend it to take five minutes, and see what it does for you.

If you do try it out, I’d love to know if it has helped you.
