FLICKR image by: Transguyjay 

In this week's podcast we're responding to the following question: I have tried breathing techniques off and on now for over a year. Sad to say, I don’t have the ability to slow my breathing down. However I know it must be possible because my breathing gets very shallow when I’m sleeping. I am always a tense person. What can I do?

 

Points covered in this podcast include:

- how to use the Bumble Bee Breath to calm anxiety (no changing of your breath required)

- the benefits of mindful breathing
