Physiological sigh

Instant calm breathing exercise

If you want to do a physiological sigh, try this technique: take a breath in, but don’t let it reach full capacity before taking another breath in. Then exhale completely. Now you’ve done a double inhale and a long exhale, which is a physiological sigh. Your body naturally does this many times daily to balance oxygen and carbon dioxide. However, when you’re anxious or stressed, you can intentionally practice a physiological sigh to let go and relax your body and mind.

  1. I’m so pleased to have found my way to your website through Ms Kathi Blocki, a flutist and educator whom I respect.

    Very curious to begin receiving your emails — and doing the exercises.
