A woman is breathing with hands on her chest and belly.

Proper diaphragmatic breathing can take some time to learn. In the beginning, practice diaphragmatic breathing laying down. Once you've mastered the technique, you can do it just about anywhere.

  1. Lay on your back on a firm, comfortable surface.
  2. Bend your knees and put your feet flat on the surface.
  3. Place one hand on your chest and the other on your belly, below your ribs.
  4. Breathe in slowly through your nose. Picture your belly filling with air, from the bottom up. Watch your hands as you breathe—only the hand on your belly should rise.
  5. Purse your lips as if you are blowing out candles and slowly breathe out. Your belly should deflate.
