Guided Deep Breathing Exercise

This is a somewhat brief script to help you take some deep breaths to aid you in relaxing, getting enough oxygen to your brain and slowing down your mind and body. This is an adapted script from SAMHSA Anger Management workbook. I like it because it helps you just remember to breathe in and out, slowly. Did you know that we often are not getting enough oxygen to our body because we are breathing very shallow, almost panic like! It is very important to take full breaths for several reasons. Also, make sure you are breathing out fully. I hope this guided breathing helps you slow down and breathe fully. Use it when you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed, or even if you just need to regroup. Feel free to use this recording to help you until you can do it on your own. Happy Breathing!
