Hold it!

Feeling frazzled?  Stop for a while and hold your breath.  Quick shallow breaths expel too much carbon dioxide and low levels of CO2 disrupt nervous system function and heighten anxiety, experts say.  Holding your breath for as long as you comfortably can helps normalize CO2 levels, easing anxiety within seconds.
