Did you realize that your breathing changed?
Many people breathe only half when they are afraid.By anger , it is often the other way around,you exhale more than
you inhale. We feel overwhelmed, the breath is shallow.
A vast majority of people breathe too shallow, especially when it comes to exhale ,try it yourself:
Inhale normal and exhale again . After you have exhaled , pull in the belly button and you will notice a lot of air comes out of your lungs .
This is the air that you not exhale by normal and shallow breathing it can not be replaced.
This means that if you breathe in and out as usual fresh air will mix with with used air.
Not very effective,because the more oxygen in your body is, the fitter you will feel and the better your metabolism .
Sit back and make yourself comfortable , breathe in as deeply as your comfort zone.
And then exhale completely until the lung is really empty and again, continue.
Do not breathe faster or slower than usual, otherwise you may get drowsy or dizzy .
Guaranteed you feel more relaxed and fresh after five breaths . Just try to evoke anger or fear ,
