I used to get real anxiety attacks and a friend at work sat me down and taught me this simple hack to reduce anxiety. It takes just a few minutes and you can calm down those anxious feelings and rid your mind of unwanted thoughts by following these simple steps. So simple anyone can do it.

What You'll Need

  • A quiet and peaceful environment is ideal, however with a bit of practise you can learn to do this anywhere from your office to a train.

What You'll Do

  • Try to focus your attention on one thing, such as your breathing. Count to 10 slowly as you focus on your breath.
  • Focus your attention on a part of your body (e.g. nose, chest) as you inhale and exhale slowly.
  • Repeat as necessary - focusing on a different part of your body as you breath.
