Yoga , meditation, mindfulness and tai chi all help with stress — and breath is the one factor that connects them all. It also helps to keep oxygen and carbon dioxide levels balanced, which supports an alkaline environment; as infection and inflammation thrive in acidity, explains Jean Hall, author of Breathe: Simple Breathing Techniques For A Calmer, Happier Life. There are some circumstances under which deep breathing is not helpful. Next time you feel overwhelmed, try the self-soothing breath. Adopt this comforting pose to alleviate anxiety ; the gentle, rhythmic rolling motion used in this practice helps to soothe both the body and the brainwaves. Drawing up the legs and hugging them softly can make powerful feelings seem less overwhelming, as you protect and contain them with this action.
