A breathing exercise to calm your heart

Inhale as you count to 3 in your mind.

Continue to count to 6 as you hold your breath

Continue to 9 as you slowly exhale as much breath as possible.

If controlled breathing is not unpleasant for you, try doing at least 5 cycles. Breathe as slowly as you like.

Watch this video for an example (in German).
