Strategy: Using Breathing to Blow Away Stress

A few years ago I was talking with a co-worker about general health and the topic of stress came up.  He taught me a bit about breathing with your diaphragm and how it generates some feel good hormones.  A few years later I was talking with a psychologist and I learned even more about this style of breathing.
