Frequently Asked Questions About Our Natural Anxiety Relief Products

 

  • How often should I use this? How many times per day?

    We recommend you use this daily. When you get triggered or stressed, it's when you use it. 
    It's like an anchor that's always there to keep you calm and cool. There’s a saying that strikes the iron when it's hot. The best time to practice breathing is when you are calm and relaxed. So that you remember how to breathe slowly and steadily. It will be harder when you are triggered or in stress. Practice it regularly so that when you are being triggered or stressed, you can pick up easily. 
    Naturally, we do 10 deep breaths per hour. We recommend each time you practice do no more than 10 breaths, because you might hyperventilate.
     
    • Why does breathing work? How many breaths do I need?

    Breathing increases oxygen to our brain and body. It is scientifically proven to release stress and anxiety in the body, reduce heart rate, panic attacks, blood pressure and cortisol level. 
    Each hour we do 10 deep breaths, that’s what we recommend to start off. 
    You can do 10 breaths each morning, afternoon and at night times
    Once you build up the habit, you can practice more than 3 times per day. 
    Ideally within one hour, do 10 deep breaths, more than that might feel uncomfortable or fainting. 

    • Can I just breathe on my own?

    Yes, you can. 
    However, when people are triggered or stressed they naturally fall into shallow breathing and forget what they learn about deep breathing
    Having a breathing necklace in front of your chest serves as an anchor and reminder to breathe deeply and consciously. 

    • Does this make a sound? Will other people hear me when I use it?

    This is not a whistle, so there’s no high to mid pitch sound. 
    But it makes sounds like the air flow in a tube, such as when you purse your lip and blow out air from your mouth. The sound is soothing and relaxing and we recommend you to do this exercise where you feel comfortable. 
    The narrow tube promotes expansion of the lung while you blow in the necklace, allowing more oxygen transfer to the lungs. 
    Unless other people are close within one arm distance, it’s not a loud sound that can be heard from away. 
    • Why is it in the form of a necklace?

    The necklace is an anchor . “Anchoring” refers to a process of associating internal response to an external or internal object. Just like a ship is anchored to the stable point on the ocean, an anchor serves as a reference point to help us to hold our attention and keep our focus from chaos and disorganization. 
    Imagine when you are going into an important meeting and you were triggered with anxiety, you could feel the weight of the necklace, as you touched it,  it reminded you to breathe deeply and focus on the air in and out which prevented you from spiraling down negative thoughts.
