4-7-8 Breath

About the Practice

Practice Benefits

4-7-8 breath is also known as relaxing breath.


We inhale for a count of 4, hold for a count of 7, and exhale for a count of 8. Practice this breath for up to four rounds. This practice is short and sweet! It is great for reducing anxiety, controls cravings, manages anger, and aids restless in just a few minutes. I recommend this practice for teens, adults, and seniors that are looking to achieve benefits from breathing exercises in a short amount of time. Learning this breathing technique teaches students and the working force how to calm themselves in a short period of time. It is recommended to practice this breathing exercise twice a day to begin feeling the benefits. I encourage you to find two minutes twice a day to incorporate this practice into your life. Perhaps when you wake up, during a break at school or work, during your down time, or before you wake up. Just four minutes a day can make a dramatic impact on your mental and emotional health.
