Five second breathing

The Quick Coherence Technique

When you find yourself stressed, use the Quick Coherence Technique as soon as you can, just for a few minutes, or whatever’s needed to help shorten the time that the experience of stressful emotions have on your energy. It will help:

  • To prepare our mind and body to perform exceptionally
  • To intercept stress before it affects you
  • To manage emotions
  • To renew energy
  1. Focus your attention on the area around your heart
  2. Start the Rhythmic breathing – notice your breath coming in and out through your heart. Breathe In for 5 seconds and out for 5 seconds
  3. Activate a positive thought and continue for a few minutes.

Use this technique as many times as you like during the day, for a few minutes at a time to take you from the survival and burnout zone to the performance and renewal zone.
