Thinking about breathing makes my anxiety worse

We often receive questions about how to slow anxious breathing down, or what to do when breathing exercises make anxiety feel worse. And that's what we’ll be talking about in this week’s podcast, along with some other natural ways to calm anxiety that don't involve breathing exercises.   Many people find breathing exercises helpful for calming anxiety, but for some, focusing on their breath becomes a trigger for anxiety.   We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who’s supported the podcast on Patreon this month, and to our new patrons Katy and April.   If you found this episode supportive, we hope you’ll consider becoming a patron! We have over 50 Anxiety Slayer downloads available on Patreon including our guided relaxations, Tapping Sessions and extra resources for calming your anxiety.   Learn more at patreon.com/anxietyslayer
