Breathe in a colour you like

An easy way to calm yourself when anxious or worried is to do a breathing exercise combined with a mental image.

  • Begin by taking a deep in-breath and let the exhalation be long. Let the bottom of the lungs fill and empty with each in-and out-breath.
  • Next, imagine a favourite and pleasant colour being inhaled with the in-breath. Fill the lungs with a beautiful colour you like and find pleasant.
  • Then exhale a least favourite colour with the out-breath. Expel the air imagining the least favourite colour leaving the body.
  • Continue as long as you like.
