Tips - Handling Anxiety and Panic

Extreme forms of emotion are often immobilizing, limiting and dangerous to one's health and well being. Some are deadly. Anxiety can harm, kill or reduce many natural abilities such as speech or singing, deepest sleep, energy, stamina and recovery times.

There are many breathing exercises.

The best ones either energize or slow down/calm the breathing or both. What is optimal also increases breathing volume and therefore one's longevity. The following breathing exercise will begin to do ALL three; slowing, energizing and expanding. 

Only one breathing exercise that I know of helps absolutely everyone.  You are about to learn it. If it does not help calm and energize then that is usually a sign of severely unbalanced breathing.

Anxiety can be caused by poor breathing speed and sequencing. This one is particularly good for Reducing Anxiety.

Try the following breathing exercise.

Testimonial
Adrenal exhaustion, anxiety

I am a 58 years young woman, High School teacher, and have spent much of my life off and on going through periods of adrenal exhaustion (of which I really had no name for up until a few years ago) and wondering why I couldn't catch my breath, actually have to crawl up stairs sometimes, waking up at night breathless etc. This all would come to pass when I was going through some kind of loss or what I perceived as a loss, or just any old time especially during times of a great deal of change. Interestingly enough when I was not going through those times, I have amazing energy, accomplish a great deal and rarely get tired. It became clear to me about 15 years ago that losing my mother at 3 years of age and not being told until I was 5 where she went, and simply living in hell with my father in one of those abusive long term dis-functional stories (tragic but boring) put me in so much fear that I learned to hold my breath and do all of the stuff that goes along with the flight or fight syndrome. 

 Long story short approximately 10 years ago described these symptoms to my doctor, adrenal surges, not being about to catch my breath, waking up at night  many times gasping for air and feeling like I am suffocating was put on Zoloft or  Paxil off and on for about 10 years. I would tell the doctors, that I didn't feel depressed and really had no idea why these physical symptoms would happen   to me and be so debilitating, but they just treat symptoms with meds. People  would tell me, well just take a deep breath. OK I'll do that I would say but I could n  not seem to get a handle on being able to get a real breath when I'm suffering  t h is panic and anxiety.

One fine day last October it finally dawned on me, I do not know really HOW to breathe! With all of the Yoga, meditation, bodywork, no one has been able to really teach me "HOW TO BREATHE". So I got on the WWW and said help!!! Punched in "breathing" and Wa La came "breathing.com" and Michael. Got Michael's self help program.

Breathing Exercise Tape #1 was such a shock for me, what I mean is I had no idea there was a reflex action at the bottom of the exhale breath that actually "breathed your body". The shallow breathing that I was in the habit of doing had never allowed the development of that reflex action. So naturally I'm waking up at night breath holding, panic stricken and clueless why this is happening. My body has been oxygen starved and getting worse as I get older. EVEN THOUGH ALL OF THE CHILDHOOD ISSUES ARE WORKED OUT, GONE, DONE WITH, the old breathing habits had remained, I was not aware of something better.

Very soon after starting the exercises, I visited Michael for 6 days in North Carolina to get private instruction. I can only tell you all that it was the best thing I could have ever done for myself. I am now of course still practicing proper breathing (50 years of bad habits), off meds, and have not awaked at night even once since starting the tapes and getting private instruction from Michael.

Again Michael, thank you a million times over for actually dedicating your life to helping people understand the importance of the breath and actually in detail showing how to really practice it.    Phyllis Ross

Several Marathons has inspired quite a few runners to use our breathing kit, looking to increase their breathing strength & endurance. This is on top of their fitness training programs.
