Learning to work with your breath to relieve stress can be a powerful tool to have within you.
If you're open to having breathing exercises you can practice on your own, but still with guidance, I can strongly Belleruth Naparstek's Panic Attacks Guided Imagery audio program.
I just picked up the Panic Attacks CD after listening to a sample on her website. The first three tracks deal with breathwork and I found the whole program extremely helpful. They help build-up relaxation and self-regulation skills
The first track focuses on conscious breathing alone. In 1-2-3, Out 1-2-3.
The second track adds a mantra to the breathwork. I breath in peace, I breath out calm. I am peaceful, I am calm, I am at ease.
The third track adds body awareness to the breathwork. You breath into all the areas of your body.
The fourth track is a powerful guided imagery meditation. It helps to face and embrace difficult episodes and helps reduce their frequency and intensity.
The fifth track has affirmations.
