"I am in the middle of working through The Anxiety Slayer Rescue Kit and I must say that it is enlightening and informative...I had no idea about the amount of value there is in this pack, lots of audio to listen to with practical relaxation and breathing techniques, and a fabulous information booklet/worksheet pack."

Review from Nicola Quinn author of Life Without Panic Attacks

"Many people recovering from chronic anxiety fall into deeper despair after their first setback. "I can't do this. What's happening to me? This isn't working. I'll never be free of this." And this is where Ananga and Shann's comprehensive Anxiety Rescue Kit comes in. 

The gorgeous meditations are profoundly relaxing and suggestions are made as to when they may be used to best effect so you are not left wondering which one to use and when. The affirmations meditation is powerful and restores faith in one's ability to cope and move forward respectfully, reminding you of what awaits you if you are willing to be just a little patient.

The soothing, comforting tones of Ananga and Shann, combined with the authority and experience of these two dedicated individuals, who between them have helped many thousands of people pass through anxiety and out the other side, are always just a finger click away.

I wish I had had the Anxiety Rescue Kit when I was recovering from anxiety. A real treasure."

3 Things to Try When You Hyperventilate When Anxious

In this week's podcast we're responding to the following question: "How do you do the  breathing exercises when you hyperventilate when anxious?"

 

Here are three things to try when anxiety makes you hyperventilate and you want to calm your breathing down:

1. Focus on Your Out Breath

If you are hyperventilating due to anxiety - now is not the time to be practising set breathing exercises.

Instead, bring your attention to your outgoing breath. Don’t try forcing yourself into a breathing pattern or trying to take slow breaths in, just breathe out in a long slow exhalation.

You might find it helpful to count as you do this.

Then, let your breathing continue at it's own pace and catch the next out breath when you can and push it out in a long slow sigh.

Keep your attention on your out breath until your breathing begins to calm down.

 

 

2. Use Breathing Exercises When You Aren’t Anxious

Try a guided breathing practice at a time when your anxiety is not running so high and you are not hyperventilating. 

 

Guided breathing exercises are particularly helpful because you can follow along with the recording step-by-step this helps you build familiarity and confidence with the technique as you go.

We have recorded several breathing exercises for anxiety relief - you can find them on iTunes or Amazon 

The Bumble Bee Breath is very good for calming anxiety and a good exercise to start with.

By practising when your anxiety is not at it’s highest you can help yourself get used to using your breath to relax your body and calm your anxiety at quieter times and these practice sessions will help to reduce your overall anxiety.

 

 

3. As an Alternative or Addition to Breathing Exercises - Try The Quick Anxiety Stopper

The Quick Anxiety Stopper is a sequence of three acupressure points that you can tap to reduce high anxiety states. It’s very effective for calming anxiety attacks where your breathing and heart are racing.
