Anxiety and Relaxation Breathing


(Diaphragmatic Breathing, Belly Breathing)

Anxiety is a physiological reaction to not enough oxygen in your system.
It’s as simple as that.

Anxiety is a “flight or fight response”.  Sometimes this response is left over from some past experience, and it has then generalized this experience to other things. Things technically not related to that fearful experience, but that may have been present in the environment when that fearful event took place.

When we are stressed and anxious, we feel our heart race, breathing is high in the chest and shallow, fingers become numb and tingly, we sweat, our neck and face become red, we can’t think, concentrate or focus.

ALL of these symptoms are simply a result of not enough oxygen in our system.

The key to lowering stress and getting rid of anxiety reactions is simply getting more oxygen in the body.

The simple fact is: You cannot be excited, anxious and fearful, and at the same time you are relaxed, calm and peaceful.  (Try it. Try to feel those two groups of emotions at the same time. It simply is impossible. The body cannot do this.)

How do we get more oxygen in the body when we need to, or choose to, be more calm and relaxed?

The following Relaxation Breathing exercise is the answer. You can choose to be as calm and relaxed as you wish, when you wish, anytime, anyplace. You can be in control of your level of relaxation.

You have a muscle that crosses your body, beneath your lungs, called the diaphragm. When you breathe in this muscle pulls down, drawing air into the lungs like a bellows or a plunger. This muscle helps you take air into your lungs. When you walk fast, or run, or do physical work, you can feel this muscle automatically kick in, and you feel your belly expanding so you can inhale more air. This happens normally and naturally.
Learning to use this muscle with each deep breath is the key to your relaxation.

Follow the exercise on the next page and learn how to be a more relaxed and calm
person, as relaxed and calm as YOU choose to be.


Relaxation Breathing

Once you know how, this Relaxation Breathing exercise should be practiced at least once per day. Practice at bedtime to use to fall easily asleep. Use anytime, anywhere, whenever you feel the slightest feeling of stress.

Sit or lye down, make yourself comfortable. Place one or both hands on your belly, just above your naval, and below your rib cage. Take a Deep breath, allow your belly to initiate or start the breath. Allow your belly to fully expand with your intake of breath. You may notice your lower back arching slightly as you inhale.

Then on the exhale allow your belly to push the air out of your lungs. Allowing the belly to start and gently force the air back out of your lungs.

Notice that with your hands on your belly you can feel your belly expand on the inhale and contract on the exhale. As you breathe deeply and slowly, simply observe and feel your belly gently move in and out.

Repeat this exercise for 10 Breaths. Practice for 10 breaths every night at bedtime.
This will help you fall asleep. Also use daily several times a day.

You can use this breathing technique to reduce stress and anxiety wherever you are, whatever you are doing. Use it sitting, standing, walking, driving…

The more you use it, the better it works. The more you use it the faster it works.
The more you use it, the less likely you are to have an episode of anxiety, panic or stress.

The more you use it, the body and mind learns to quickly and immediately go into relaxation.

Remember: the body cannot be excited, anxious and fearful, at the same time it is relaxed, calm and peaceful.

Recharging Your Battery

When your feeling low energy, run down, listless, or just plain blah...
Here are some things to do to get recharged:

1. Take a non-purposeful walk in nature. Not for the sole purpose of exercise, but a walk just for entertainment. Notice nature while you walk. Notice squirrels, birds, your neighbors gardens and homes. Relax while you walk. walking is very soothing to the mind and body. It naturally induces a meditative state, soothing even sore muscles and tight backs and shoulders. Fresh air is rejuvinating as well.

2. Notice feelings. Are you unhappy? Is there something in your life that is not a good fit? Is it time to change that? Write those feelings down on paper and explore them. Sometimes this helps in defining the core of the unhappiness. Then take a new page and write down ideally how you want that job, person, daily life to be. Only write "what you do want". Write only the postives.

3. Take yourself on a one day holiday, "Me Day". Call in sick to work. Take yourself out to breakfast or lunch, read the newspaper lesuirely and watch the other people go off to work. Take yourself to a movie. Take a leisurely bubble bath. Do what you want to do for a day. Taking a "Me Day" often has the positive benefit of heading off a cold or illness that will then force you to take one to several days off work when you're feeling run down.

4. Always focus on the positive. Happiness is a choice. Focus on the first postive thing you think of, (I saw a Robin on my lawn today), and build from there. We are what we think about most of the time. Focusing on postive thoughts increases the seratonin and endorphins in our system and elevates out mood naturally. We feel better when we think better.

Social Anxiety ??

Ever go someplace and start to feel uncomfortably funny? You feel your heart start to race, butterflys in the stomache, you can't breath, your chest feels tight, your hands sweat and tingle, your face turns red, you sweat, you can't seem to fucus your eyes and thoughts, perhaps can't speak clearly...
You may be experiencing an anxiety reaction to a social situation or something in the environment that has triggered your natural flight or fight response.
Hypnotherapy can and does relieve all of these symptoms. Hypnotherapy will put you back in control of your flight or fight response and make you a more calm and relaxed person on an everyday basis, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. Hypnotherapy is the answer for taking back your power over these emotions. It will put you back in charge.

Surgeon General Warns that Even Inhaling is BAD: A December 9 report says there's no doubt that tobacco smoke begins poisoning immediately as more then 7,000 chemicals in each puff rapidly spread through the body to cause cellular damage in nearly every organ. "That one puff on that cigarette could be the one that causes your heart attack," said Surgeon General Regina Benjamin. OR the one that causes someone else's: "I advise people to try to avoid being around smoking any way that you can," she said. About 443,000 Americans die from tobacco-caused illness every year. About 46 million adults -one in five- still smoke, and tens of millions more are regularly exposed to secondhand smoke. It's become clear that some of the harms- especially those involving the heart-kick in right a3way, said Dr. Terry Pechacek of the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. That means social smoking, the occasional cigarette at a party, can be enough to trigger a heart attack in someone whose arteries already are silently clogged, he said.
