Breath: A Powerful Ally in the Battle Against Anxiety

Before we dive into the specifics of the 7/11 Breathing Technique, let’s take a moment to acknowledge the power of breath as a tool to combat anxiety. Breathing is an automatic bodily function, but with a little conscious effort and attention, it can become an invaluable ally in managing stress and regaining control over our emotions.

The Simplicity and Power of the 7/11 Breathing Technique

At its core, the 7/11 Breathing Technique is a simple yet highly effective method that can be learned quickly and added to your personal toolbox of relaxation techniques. The name itself refers to the ratio of breaths taken during the exercise: inhaling for a count of 7, and exhaling for a count of 11. This technique is designed to activate the body’s natural relaxation response and help you achieve a sense of calm and tranquility.


Here’s how you can practice the 7/11 Breathing Technique:

  1. Find a comfortable position: Sit or lie down in a quiet space where you can fully focus on your breath.

  2. Relax your body: Take a moment to consciously release any tension you may be holding in your muscles. Allow your body to settle into a state of relaxation.

  3. Breathe in for 7 seconds: Inhale slowly and deeply, counting to 7 in your mind. Feel the breath filling your lungs and expanding your belly.

  4. Exhale for 11 seconds: Gently and fully exhale, counting to 11 as you release the air from your lungs. Let go of any stress or worries with each breath out.

  5. Repeat for several cycles: Continue the 7/11 breathing pattern for a few minutes, focusing on the rhythmic flow of your breath.

Try it - it helps!
