Stay busy

It sounds a weird thing to say as we do it everyday all day, but it’s important to breathe properly. If you’re feeling low, try to regulate your breathing and pay attention to what you can see, hear and feel at the present moment. Most of us don’t take deep soothing breaths from our diaphragm; we tend to take short, shallow breaths that only use the upper part of our lungs. Inhale slowly through your nose, then exhale through your mouth. Do this for 5-10 minutes This will help you to feel calm and bring you back to a positive emotional balance.
