Deep breathing gets such a bad rap, because it seems entirely cliche.  Well, I'm here to show you that there's a reason relaxation training always involves mindful breathing.  Whether you're a sufferer of social anxiety, panic attacks, burnout, stress or generalized anxiety... this coping skill will work for you.
