When you are anxious you will find you are not breathing properly. By taking time each day to do some breathing exercises you will find your body is able to be calmer.

Sometimes I get push back from the Christian community on this. This is not anything other than breathing. There is nothing spiritual to this. This is not prayer or meditating on God. This is simply calming your anxious body. If you are anxious you cannot stay anxious if you are breathing properly. So breathe properly.

Here is a really good article on this conversation if you want to go deeper. Click Here.

This was an article I wrote about what it is like to be in church while having anxiety. I bet many of you have similar experiences. Click Here.
