Many of the breathing exercises that are online may even increase anxiety. That is because they are not designed exercises for people suffering panic attacks. We have to be careful with the deep breaths because they can make you hiperventiles and you have a panic attack. We are therefore going to focus on making short, slow breaths. Instead of slow and deep. If you use the strategy that I am about to teach you, stop feeding the anxiety and not hiperventilaras you. That will make it very difficult to have a panic attack.

When you use this technique, you get relieve anxiety because you activate the parasympathetic nervous system. This system is that is responsible for regulating the levels of anxiety. When you know to activate the parasympathetic nervous system can produce a State of balance and relaxation. When it comes to relieve anxiety, we can speak of two nervous systems. The sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.

When we have anxiety, activates the sympathetic nervous system and puts us in a State of fight-flight. This State can be very useful for dangerous moments or extreme situations. It allows us to run faster, have more reflexes etc. Up to there well but when the sympathetic nervous system remains activated more time than normal begins the problem. Anxiety builds up and causes a panic attack. This happens because the sympathetic nervous system causes our breathing to increase. If our breathing increases, the heart beats more strongly. Then, if we are in this State for longer than normal, we risk more to suffer a crisis of anxiety. Apart from other mental factors that also influence (we will discuss them in another article). This means that this technique of breathing (designed for people with much anxiety) allows you to soothe body and mind. They work because they regulate the levels of anxiety by activating the parasympathetic nervous system.
