Breathe Away Stress


Sherry Roberts has a way to help you with your stress. It doesn’t involve a pill, nor a vacation. In fact, you can do it simply by controlling your breathing.

People give you strange looks when you tell them you spent your Saturday afternoon breathing. But that’s what I did. There were about 10 of us at the workshop on breathing at my local yoga center. We were all there for different reasons: to learn how to use breathing to cope with stress, asthma, and respiratory illness; to discover how to breathe efficiently during yoga, meditation, our daily chores, walks in the neighborhood, and hikes up mountains.

There are techniques and even further suggested readings. I gave it a quick try, and found myself fiercely unskilled. Practice will be the word of the day.
