Breath-work For Depression / Breath-work For Mania

It is a known fact that deep breathing and other breathing exercises help to calm nerves and ease anxiety. Breath work is known to have a calming effect on our mental well-being and especially people suffering from Depression/Mania tend to use breath work as a common tool in their everyday lives. Our studies have shown them to be very helpful.

​ We have been studying how effective Breath-work is and have so far learned some very interesting things. While many people rave about the difference Breath-work has made, when we dig a little deeper we find that how one uses the tool has a major effect on how well it works.

Please take a couple of minutes to answer the following questions about how you are using Breath-work as a tool. Our hope is that by answering a few simple questions you will learn more about how to use the tool yourself, but also that what you share can benefit others when we compile all of the information we gather.

The study is completely anonymous. We do not even ask who you are or any identifying information. Please fill out the questionnaire below right away and thank you in advance for helping us with our study of walking as a tool for depression, mania, and mixed states.
