Stress is the number one killer.
According to the American Psychological Association, chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide.
To reduce stress, you should practice and master this one simple trick: BREATHING.
You might get surprised and pissed off to waste your time reading the article, however, stress is caused due to high blood pressure. The easiest way to reduce it is to learn how to breathe the Right Way:
1- Take a deep breath (from your nose) as deep as you can, and try to feel your lungs filled with air.
2- Hold your breath for as long as you can (around 7 seconds would be great)
3- Release the air from your mouth slowly till you feel you have no oxygen in your lungs. (This step is the most important one, you will feel that you have extruded all the bad energy)
4- Repeat Step 1 but try to breathe as slowly as you can.
Repeat the procedure for 2 to 3 times before the exam, interview, etc... and you will feel much better, more powerful and hopefully more confident.
