Q. Do breathing practice give you relief from mental turbulence & mental anxiety?

Breathing can be very helpful. The point I want to make about this is that use of your breathing to get calm is not just something you can use when you’re feeling terrible. If you stay in touch with your feelings and notice all the times in the day that your mood shifts, including the times when you’re irritated but not very upset, it can keep your mood on track throughout the day.

People everywhere are learning mindfulness meditation, and this gives people a way to relax for a few minutes and also a way to be more aware of all the mood shifts they have during the day. Mindfulness apps have become very popular.

Psychiatrists Brown and Gerbarg, who have published 6 papers on breathing and mental health, recommend a 3-part program of mind-body methods – breathing, meditation, and slow body movement. Incorporate these into your daily life. Be aware of changes in mood and respond mindfully, aware of your breathing. Details here:


Other things take some effort but they’re very rewarding – things that make your life meaningful, like a good hobby, art, or volunteer work. Take care of your health with the right lifestyle choices.

Q. Can anxiety make you think you are losing your memory/mind?

How to get out of your mind when you’re anxious?

When we have a lot of anxiety, it puts worrisome thoughts into our heads. There’s two ways to get rid of those thoughts. 

One is just to calm down. The easiest way to do this is to breathe slowly till you feel OK Two psychiatrists, Brown and Gerbarg, say a 10 or 20 min slow breathing exercise – 5 breaths a min – is good and 20 min twice a day is a therapy for anxiety. The exercise is inhale and exhale gently, 6 seconds each.

When you’re calm, you can think your way through a problem instead of just worrying about it. Think about the worst thing that can happen, how likely that is and what you could do if it happens. In a stressful situation, think about the different ways you can respond and decide which one is the most intelligent. 

Don’t make mountains out of molehills.

*. When you use the thinking brain, you get control of the emotional brain, and you feel better.

*. Also, replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Count your blessings and remind yourself of your successes.

*. The treatments for anxiety range from simple stress reduction methods to therapy and medication. Don’t overlook stress management – it can help even with very bad anxiety.
