2. Practice deep breathing

“It sounds like an oversimplification,” says Owen, “but increasing your oxygen levels lowers the physiological effects of anxiety on your body.”

In other words, your heart rate goes down, your muscles relax, and your mind slows down — all of which can aid in reducing worry.

Here’s a deep-breathing exercise to try the next time you find yourself worrying:

  1. Choose a comfortable place to sit or lie down and close your eyes.
  2. Breathe in through your nose, imagining a sense of calm filling your body.
  3. Slowly breathe out through your mouth, visualizing all of your worries and tensions leaving your body.
  4. Repeat this process as many times as you need.
