How to decrease anxiety while washing your hands.

During the current pandemic, many of us are feeling an increase in our general anxiety and particularly our health anxiety. For people new to this kind of persistent anxiety, one of the ways of regaining control is to focus on your breathing.

We are all washing our hands diligently, but take the time while washing your hands to focus on your breathing, and to make sure you also spend enough time putting soap on.

Wet your hands and apply your soap. While rubbing the soap on your hands follow the guidelines below.⠀

🌟 Breathe in through your nose for the count of 4.⠀

🌟 Hold your breath for the count of 7.⠀

🌟 Breathe out through your mouth for the count of 8.⠀


🌟 Rinse your hands⠀
