This technique eases the fight-or-flight response by slowing your heart rate and breathing, as well as lowering your blood pressure. Counting adds a meditative quality to this technique, which can be particularly helpful for quieting persistent worried thoughts.

For this technique, find somewhere comfortable to sit or lie down where you won't be interrupted. When you're ready to begin, audio guidance will walk you through the whole technique.
