breath control alone achieve remarkable results; lowering
blood pressure, ending heart

Most of us arn't even conscious of our breathing!
But, if you paid attention to it for a minute, we'd probably discover
that we're taking only shallow breaths -
We don't even begin to fill our lungs.
Deep abdominal breathing (otherwise known as Diaphramic Breathing) fills
our lungs completely and calmly -
both mentally and physically.
Here's how to do it. . . . . . . . .
1. Lie on your back and place a book on your belly. Relax your stomach
muscles and inhale deeply, so that
the book rises. When you exhale the book should fall.
up and place your right hand on your abdomen and your left hand
on your chest. Breath deeply so that
your right "abdominal" hand rises and falls with your breath, while yor
left "chest" hand stays relatively still.
Breath in through your NOSE ONLY (no mouth inhaling) and out through
nose or mouth.
a timer or clock with a second hand in clear view. Breath in
slowly, filling your abdomen, for five seconds,
then breath out slowly for five seconds.
You can practice
relaxation breathing throughout the day. when you wake
up, before you go to sleep, in any stress
producing situation - or any time you think of it. Hopefully you will
get so familiar with it that the next time an anxiety
or panic attack arrives you can calm yourself with this breathing
