Breathing Tips After COVIDCOVID continues to have global anxiety running high. But the great thing about these deep breathing exercises, in addition to recovering your breath, is that they are also helpful in calming anxious minds. So even if you’re not suffering from the after effects of COVID, these breathing exercises can help calm your nerves no matter what is causing your anxiety to rise. Each exercise should be performed with your lips closed, your tongue pressed to the roof of the mouth, and your breath going in and out of your nose. Slowly increase repetitions as you feel comfortable. Although these are simple breathing exercises, please don’t overwork yourself. Talk to a doctor if you are feeling sick, dizzy, fatigued, have an irregular heartbeat, chest pains, or any type of abnormal feeling. If at any time you start to feel dizzy or unwell, please stop, rest, and contact your doctor.
