IS Breathing Stress Relief?

April 17th, 2011

This may sound like a strange question, how we breathe can either increase our stress or bring stress relief. You may not be aware, but when you are anxious or worried you tend to breathe fast and shallow. Which increases your anxiety while your mind just keeps racing.
