If you're standing, keep your feet straight and shoulder-width apart; if you're sitting, Photo Manipulation Services let your body relax against the back of the chair with your feet on the ground. Then, inhale deeply through your nose, feel your chest and abdomen slowly expand as you inhale, and count silently for five seconds as you inhale. After inhaling, slowly exhale through your mouth, feel the air in the abdomen and chest cavity being slowly spit out, and also count silently for five seconds while exhaling. Repeat deep inhalation and exhalation five times, or until you feel yourself relaxed.
This helps to relax your muscles, slow your heart rate and lower your blood pressure. After adjusting the physical level and letting the tense body relax a little, we can enter the cognitive adjustment on the psychological level. The two most basic steps to adjust your anxiety state are: clarifying the "imagination" and "facts" in your mind; then distinguishing between the parts you "have the power to change" and the "powerless" parts, and convert the mental energy spent on anxiety into energy for action.
