What if we told you there is a simple way to help alleviate many of your problems: so simple, you already do it all the time without thinking about it? Conscious breathing - slowing down, taking long inhales and even longer exhales - not only delivers health-giving oxygen to your body, it also helps calm your mind and relax your body.
It also offers some other surprising benefits. Training yourself to concentrate on your breath is an ancient form of mindfulness - it has always been an essential ingredient in yoga - and it is remarkable how quickly you notice the changes it brings once it becomes part of your routine. The simple fact of slowing down and being in the moment, removing all distractions apart from the rise and fall of your breath, is a powerful way to shake off whatever ails you.
