Coherent Breathing is a great way to stabilize and down regulate the nervous system. You can do it alone, or with a partner. You can do it with eyes open or closed, You can sit opposite or touching a partner, back to back or leaning in anyway that is comfortable. Try it before you go to sleep, or if you need to settle down after something upsetting. It is a good way to lower chronic anxiety and hypervigilance.
