Box breathing is a type of rhythmic breathing where you follow a pattern to help you stay focused. It’s a paced breathing exercise that you can do anywhere!
Think waiting at a traffic light, while in the shower, or even at work!
It consists of 4-second rotations of breathing in, holding your breath, breathing out, holding your breath, and repeating. Box breathing is also known as the Navy SEAL breathing technique or square breathing, and it’s a surprisingly simple way to calm down and feel great.
