Relax

Breathe like a baby. Babies are the best breathers.

They haven’t learnt any bad habits yet and they use their physiology efficiently, as nature intended. As such, they breathe from their bellies, which is 20 per cent more energy efficient. They breathe through their noses. They breathe out longer to calm down. Try it now:

1. Breathe in from the belly through the nose to a count of four.
2. Breathe out from the belly through the nose to a count of six.
3. Repeat until you feel just right.

Breathing at this rhythm of six breaths per minute has been shown to optimize the impact on your physiology.
