Anxiety is a dreadful feeling, one that all of us have experienced at some point in our lives. Anxiety attacks are scary events that although typically short, to the person having it, seem to last a long time. Often the person will experience heart racing, shortness of breath, sweating… It sometimes can come out of no where, where as other times you feel it creeping up. There are prescription medications to take for anxiety, but natural remedies are often times more favorable, as well as better for you.
One remedy to ease an anxiety attack is connected to changing our breathing. In yoga, this practice is called pranayama. In the video, teacher Gillian B is seated on a beach in Jamaica as she details her experience with anxiety, and how she believes this special way of breathing is a better way to help with an anxiety attack.
What Gillian does next is astounding. Her simple solution to easing anxiety is not only free, you can do it virtually anywhere. The benefits of Gillian’s teaching also help to ease tension, calm the mind, as well as release accumulated fatigue. It’s a wonderful exercise, even if you don’t suffer from anxiety attacks, as it helps clear out blocked energy channels in the body. It only takes a few minutes to go through the exercise, and in turn, you’ll be relaxed and ready to take on the day ahead.
