Anxiety breathing exercises
Anyone who has suffered from the condition knows how disabling and frustrating it can be. Good news? Like most things in life, yoga and meditation are the best options for relieving anxiety symptoms because deep breathing can relieve symptoms. Take your Mala beads. Today, we're going to talk about three breathing exercises that relieve anxiety.

The technology
Without a doubt, one of the simplest breathing techniques is the "square technique"; It's so easy that many thoughtful parents start teaching their children this strategy at an early age to help them control their minds and bodies.

Basically, all you have to do is draw a square and then use your fingers or your imagination to draw it in the air. For each line you "draw", you make an action. Such as:

Draw the first line and take a deep breath
Draw the second line of the square and exhale slowly
Draw the third line of the square and inhale slowly
Draw the last line of the square and pause
You want to hold each step for 4 seconds for maximum effect.

A three-second count
Another simple anxiety-relieving breathing exercise is the three-second count. Mala beads necklaces are also particularly easy to use. So, win-win!

This breathing exercise involves inhaling, holding, and exhaling -- three simple steps. Now, the key is to hold your breath for three seconds after inhaling, hence the name of this exercise. Here's an example:

Breathe in slowly and deeply through your nose
Hold your breath and count to three
Slowly exhale through pursed lips
As mentioned earlier, you can bead the necklace by moving your finger in each step. Continue to do so until you return to the guru bead, and you will have completed this breathing exercise long enough to reap the powerful benefits.

However, it can also be used without Mala beads and for a few minutes.

4-7-8 Breathing techniques
Finally, another popular and equally effective breathing exercise for anxiety relief is the 4-7-8 technique. This method combines sound and prolonged persistence to maximize anxiety relief, which makes it slightly more complicated than other methods, but the effect is worth it. Here are some steps that can immediately ease fear, anxiety, and stress:

Exhale completely, emptying the lungs and making a whooshing sound through your mouth
Breathe in through your nose for a count of four
Hold your breath for a count of seven
Exhale through your mouth for a count of 8, making the same exhale

Any type of deep breathing will do wonders to relieve anxiety and help you stay calm and move forward. So, when you feel fear and panic flooding over you, grab that Mala bead necklace around your neck and take a moment to breathe. OasyMala also has plenty of Mala bead necklaces for anxiety. So, be sure to check these out.
