Mindful breathing is helpful if you are experiencing any of the following:
If your body is feeling jittery, your muscles are tense or you have racing thoughts.

If you have feelings of jumpiness, uneasiness, worry, sadness, rejection, unhappiness, regret, embarrassment, anger, annoyance, bitterness, jealousy, or irritation.

and if you find yourself doing things, such as withdrawing, clenching hands or fists, using a loud voice, complaining, crying, being touchy or grouchy, blaming or criticizing.

How can you BREATH MINDFULLY?
 FIND A QUIET PLACE
 FOCUS ATTENTION ON BREATH AND JUST KNOWING YOU’RE BREATHING
 INHALE, FILLING YOUR LUNGS,
 EXHALE, LETTING ALL THE AIR OUT OF YOUR LUNGS,
 CONTINUE TO FOCUS ON YOUR BREATH UNTIL YOU FEEL CALMER AND MORE CENTERED.
