Windows app aids square breathing technique


One of the first things I learned about yoga was that controlled breathing can help you deal with stress and anxiety. With square breathing, you learn to breathe to a count of four in four segments. You hold your breath for four seconds, then exhale slowly through your nose for four seconds.

Yes, the technique requires you to time your breathing and count off the seconds. But, if you have a Windows phone, there’s an app that can help you stay on track.

The Square Breathing Meditation App will guide you step-by-step on the correct Square Breathing technique when you are feeling the most stressed.

The app lets you select and play music or other soothing sounds while a male or female voice counts off the seconds. The app isn't meant to treat, diagnose, cure, or prevent any disease. But it does promise to help you chill out when you need to.

The app costs $4.99 and is available in the Windows Phone App Store.
