Box Breathing is the Opposite of Panic

Panic

How does a panic attack impact your autonomic nervous system?

When a panic attack strikes our bodies trigger our Fight or Flight response, heart pumping, shallow breathing, sweaty palms and tunnel vision to name a few of the symptoms. All these responses tell our brain to PANIC.

 

Box Breathing

Box Breathing is the opposite of panic. It’s a calming response.

By slowing down our breathing and taking deep controlled breaths you are telling your brain that everything is okay. 

 

When you use the breathing clock you are guided through 4 good quality breaths in a minute. This cycle of Inhale, Pause, Exhale, Pause is proven to take the focus from the stress-inducing situation and gives you time to stop the negative spiral before it starts.
