This is one of the most common breathing exercises to help relieve stress. Here is how you can do it:
- Lie down on your bed or sit in a comfortable chair.
- Now, put one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen right below your ribs.
- Inhale slowly, feeling your belly rise and push your hand. Try to keep your other hand still, your chest should not rise.
- Exhale through pursed lips until you feel all the air go out of your stomach.
- Repeat 5-10 times or as required.
