7-11 Breathing 

Breathing techniques are not just 'mind tricks', they produce a bodily response that lowers your anxiety in a very physical way. *HG

How to do 7-11 breathing

Breathe in through the nose for a count of 7 

Breathe out through the mouth for a count of 11 (slowly as though you are breathing out through a straw)

If you are feeling very panicky breathe in and out of the nose only for 7-11

Continue to breathe like this for 10 minutes or as long as it takes for you to feel relaxed.
