QuietKit LogoEver need a way to rid some of the anxiety you’re feeling? QuietKit has a breathing technique called Box Breathing which allows you to follow a breathing pattern that helps eliminate your stresses. Through counts of four (inhale deeply for 4-secs, hold your breath 4-secs, exhale for 4-secs, repeat for a minute or two), this breathing pattern can ease your anxiety and get you back in control of your mind and body. This technique is meant to help relieve the tension in your body and increase focus of your mind. Interestingly enough, it is widely used by Navy Seals to prepare for intense training sessions and live missions. Check out the Box Breathing technique and add this tool to your self-improvement toolkit!

(For more information on the Seals’ breathing techniques, here’s an article on eHow describing its use.)
