Feelings of anxiety often are accompanied by physical reactions. When your body trembles with anxious sensations like sweaty hands, a shaky voice, a racing heart, or an upset stomach, try a few relaxing breaths:
  1. Put your hand on your abdomen.
  2. Take a slow, deep breath and notice your abdomen expanding.
  3. Hold that breath for 5 or 6 seconds.
  4. Slowly breathe out and let your shoulders droop.
  5. As you exhale, say the word “relax” to yourself.
  6. Repeat this type of breath ten times.
