Learn some deep breathing techniques to help you destress and relax.

SIDE NOTE:
Many people say smoking calms them down. Think of the action they are doing: breathing deeply. Smokers should eliminate the cigarette, and practice the breathing they know

Look up some deep breathing techniques on youtube and make them part of your routine.

    I have heard this so many times, but do you think I do it? I plan to do deep breathing each time I drink water (not at the same time) and when I am stressed. I'll give it a shot.
Thnaks. Bless you. Pam
