Triangle Breathing is a mindful breathing practice that can help us relax through rhythmic inhaling, holding, and exhaling of the breath. Studies have shown that intermittent breath holding is associated with improved state mindfulness, reduced mind-wandering, and reduced state anxiety in young adults. Additionally, breath retention before exhaling has been shown to reduce heart rate and diminish the perception of physical pain.
