Use an App
Dr. Wehrenberg recommends a few apps that help users focus on breathing: "My clients like Breathe2Relax and Relax Lite: Stress Relief, [available on Android and Apple]," in particular, she says. The Mayo Clinic Anxiety Coach app is another reputable option.
"These apps can help you with breathing, to help you keep your focus," says Wehrenberg. "There are probably 200 [related] apps out there, so it's easy to find an app that you like, which you can focus on when you're trying to breathe and calm down."
