Sometimes, when I feel anxious, it’s like my ribcage and lungs are being squeezed, and it feels as though I’m not able to breathe.
Now I use the Relaxator and breathe with it until the feeling stops. Normally, the anxiety and pressure on my chest disappear after about 10 or 15 minutes.
I also use the Relaxator before I sing in public. Occasionally I get severe stage fright, but then I’m able to practice the Conscious Breathing Retraining to calm down. It really works very well.
