Box Breathing

AHS Box Breathing

Box breathing is a powerful breathing technique that can help you reduce stress, improve focus, and enhance your overall well-being. This technique is also used by the police and military personnel to help reduce stress levels before, during and after high-risk encounters.

To practice box breathing, find a quiet and comfortable place to sit or lie down. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Take a few deep breaths to settle into a comfortable rhythm.
  2. Inhale deeply through your nose for a count of four, feeling your lungs expand fully.
  3. Hold your breath for a count of four, focusing your attention on your breath and clearing your mind.
  4. Exhale slowly and fully through your mouth for a count of four, releasing all the air from your lungs.
  5. Hold your breath for a count of four, maintaining a sense of calm and relaxation.

Repeat this cycle for several minutes, or as long as you like. As you practice box breathing, focus on maintaining a steady, even rhythm and staying present with your breath. By practicing this technique regularly, you may find that you feel more calm, grounded, and energized in your daily life.
