Stress is a classic side-effect of polycystic ovarian syndrome and it can increase other symptoms that those of us with PCOS often suffer. But the good news is that you can fight back against stress and greatly improve the quality of your life as a result.
You’ve probably heard of anger management. But how about stress management? The later is really quite easy to do, whenever you feel stressed, by taking “a mini mental vacation” in the form of a paced breathing exercise.
Breathe in deeply through your nose for a count of four using your fingers: hold your breath for a count of seven, again on your fingers; then exhale through your mouth for a count of between six and eight, once again counting off on your fingers.
Repeat the process four times, as often as you like, anywhere you happen to be and at any time of the day, from first thing in the morning to just before you go to sleep at night. You’ll be amazed by the calming effect it has.
