08 Feb Do you know how to breathe?
Tackle an everyday uncomfortable moment with deep, slow breathing. Leading a meeting, presenting a talk or workshop, introducing yourself to a stranger – these situations trigger your fight or flight system – the tightened muscles and increased heart rate. It’s an innate part of being alive and all of these things can be vital to your growth and success. You can get more comfortable with it though – inhale for a count of 5, exhale for a count of 8, and repeat several times. Simple, free, effective. Try it.
Breathe baby breathe.
