Follow our specially commissioned HRV Breathing Trainer to guide you through this breathing pattern.
Breathe to the rhythm of the heart image, breathing in as the heart expands, and breathing out as it gets smaller. At the end of the out breath there is a pause, where you hold your breath. Then you start again. Follow this pattern for 10 minutes. Breathe naturally and breathe smoothly. With regular practice, this pattern:
• reduces anxiety
• improves sleep quality
• improves immune function
• lowers heart rate
• lowers blood pressure
• reduces stress hormones
• increases 'feel good ' hormones
