Most people are shallow breathers. They don’t use the full potential of their breath. The problem with shallow breathing is that it creates the conditions to support emotions, like anxiety and fear, to stay around for longer.
When you’re a shallow breather struggling with anxiety and fear, incorporating deep breathing techniques into your life can make a big difference. Deep breathing activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This leads to feelings of relaxation, calmness and mental clarity. And this is the state you need to be in order to move past anxiety and fear.
