How to Manage Pandemic Stress With Conscious Breathing

This in-the-moment recharge strategy helps reduce anxiety.

The coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated anxiety and stress levels around the world, and many are struggling to cope. Joey Hubbard, Thrive Global’s Chief Training Officer, has a simple, in-the-moment strategy that helps reduce anxiety and improves one’s ability to manage stress. All it takes is harnessing the power of your breath. As Joey explains in the video above, bringing attention to the rising and falling of your breath — otherwise known as “conscious breathing” — can take you from feeling stressed or overwhelmed to relaxed and present. Watch the rest of the “Thriving Mind” video for more on how you can take control of your feelings during this difficult time, and also try conscious breathing for yourself.
