You! With the Facebook page! If you're reading this – this is your reminder to pause for a moment and to take a deep breath.

Inhale for a count of five 😮
Exhale for a count of six 😤

Ah! Hopefully, you're feeling a little better 😊

Focusing on your breath is a proven way to manage moments of anxiousness and stress. Finding a sense of peace and calm in our day-to-day lives can be difficult. Relaxation techniques can help to relax the mind and body and also manage some of the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Annie RoseFocusing on Breathing gives us a point of contact to focus our mind. It’s not s magical eraser andike anything it takes practice. Don’t give up first time. The most simplistic form and the thoughts will come the chit chat of our monkey minds. You acknowledge them and let them go like clouds in the sky. Limit the time. If it’s only one round of in and out it’s a start. Then aim for more frequent moments bc red flags will appear and it’ll remind you to give it a shot. Then aim for longer sessions like 10 minutes when you wake And before bed. And perhaps during the day. Results will show but you have to let them show up without force. Like losing weight or learning a new language, it takes time and practice. It’s free and worth a shot. If it’s doesn’t work then move onto something else. You don’t have to do it. It’s ok. But it will for others. I have learnt that it’s always worth a go. I have heard of many that have a smiling practice. I find this so difficult yet doesn’t it sound fun and how we really want to be? Happy joy sad. Relaxed not tense. The groups would have to sit and smile- either sitting eyes shut or in the mirror. It’s said the happy chemicals in our Brain are released when we smile. And then it becomes less forced and more natural. I have become so comfortable at being stressed and anxious that when I am happy I question it, yet I want to be happy. It’s quite an odd place to be. But I have three little ones motivating me and I fAil for sure. But there Is always success. Just open up to the opportunity and you’re already on the road! Good luck and may you all feel less depressed less anxious and that happiness that is there burst out!!!!

Jacinta KilmartinI don't feel like I can breathe that long and when I do it I'm aware of breathing and start breathing too deeply and unevenly anyway. It just makes me worse. The relaxing breaths feel like fake ones and there's not enough air going in. Relaxation is stressful.

Marianne PortolesiHa if breathing could only solve the deepest of depression I'd be hiring an oxygen tank. Breathing doesn't always work.

Adrian PottleI'm fortunate to see a psychologist regularly, he has taught me breathing exercises, muscle relaxation techniques and the benefits of mindfulness. Although I am still using medications my anxiety has dropped off amazingly. Once learned these techniques can be used as part of my mental health recovery, anywhere anytime.

Milos FCI needed a psychiatrist because my previous one retired, after trying to find one, many refused me ( I found later the lady said it is hard for me to find one because I’m 61 years old) they gave one to me but he charges so much I can’t afford, I’m only work a few hours a week . This after everyone said we have to look after with people with mental problem, I found it very depressing and discriminatory very very upset 😡 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

Richard BakowskiYou should practice mindful breathing on a day to day exercise not just when you are having anxiety or panic attack

Andrew TweedieYou'd think breathing is easy. It actually takes lots of practice to get the benefit in this situation. Despite the "hippy dippy" aspects of yoga I found the necessity to concentrate on the action quite releasing. And I never thought thought standing still could make you sweat so much. It works for me. However, just like lower back issues, everyone is an "expert". Never give up the search for what works for you.

Chloë Berry-PorterI often find myself holding in my breath without realising. I do need to practice breathing more mindfully. Thank you for the reminder.

Lesley Anne Stewarta psychiatrists once told me to breathe normally, not deeply, which can make you slightly hyper and dizzy - not the desired result if you're having a panic attack. So I do it but concentrate on normal breathing. It seems to calm down any panic feelings that deep breathing doesn't. Hope that's helpful to some.
