Breathe, a tool to help calm anxiety was created by the founder of Battle of Mind after experiencing first hand anxiety attacks he learnt how to control his feelings and thoughts with the use of correct breathing methods. In this blog post he shares three videos he created with the aim of helping others learn how to relax through deep and slow breathing whilst visualising a peaceful place. Please leave feedback so I can improve the designs for you.
Breathe spoken guided breathing video
In this video the founder speaks, guiding you to breath correctly and calm down your feelings of anxiety. It is a three minute video but long enough to experience the effect of slow conscious breathing.
Breathe numbered guided breathing video
In the second video (but the first created) he uses the sound of breathing in and out , inhaling after 5 seconds and exhaling for the same amount of time, holding at the base for a split second. Repeating this process in sequences of equal measure is important to bring equilibrium back to your thought patterns. After some feedback from users they found more guidance was needed as the numbers made it too precise as when to breathe or not to. What are your thoughts?
Breathe with no guide
This final video is just the music and the clouds. It’s aim is to be for those who just want to relax and already know how to deep breath.
