Improve your breathing with this technique

Box breathing is a fantastic way to learn how to control your breathing and calm your mind

Box breathing, also known as square breathing or 4 square breathing, is a techniques that can heighten performance and focus as well as being a powerful stress reliever.

It is a very simple technique that just involves slow controlled breathing with pauses in between in the inhale and exhale.

It is a very common technique that is used in high pressure or stressful careers like the U.S Navy SEALS, nurses and is now even used in professional sports teams .

I have found it to be a great way to calm my nerves before doing my lung function tests at the hospital as well.
