Simple breathing exercises for carers
Carmen Cooper, Wellbeing Facilitator at BANES Carers Centre, has put together a simple video for us, using the 2-to-1 breathing technique, to help counteract feelings of stress and overwhelm. This breathing exercise will help regulate your breathing so you return to a place of calm.
A simple breathing exercise video for carers
As carers, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the responsibilities we face, from medical appointments to the daily to do lists, cooking, cleaning and admin tasks that never seem to end.
And when we’re feeling stressed we often start to breathe faster, which can increase feelings of panic just at the moment when we would benefit from feeling calmer.
So why not take a few minutes to ourselves, to enjoy and benefit from Carmen's video.
