Box Breathing To Calm Down

Breathe in sync with this:
Box breathing (the Navy SEAL breathing technique) visual guide
This Navy SEAL breathing technique, aka box breathing or tactical breathing, is used to calm yourself down, a simple 4 second rotation of breathing in, holding, breathing out, holding.
A perfect visual meditation for when you can't listen to audio, or just need a quick second to refocus.
Use this image to help you keep time! :)
Here are the directions:
  1. Inhale for 4 seconds (as the circle expands)
  2. Hold your lungs full for 4 seconds (as the circle stays fully expanded)
  3. Exhale for 4 seconds (as the circle shrinks)
  4. Hold your lungs empty for 4 seconds (as the circle is contracted)
That's it!
