Tracking Your Breathing

If you’re serious about using siower, deeper breathing to help you destress and even lower your blood pressure, consider investing in a biofeedback device called RespeRate. The size of a paperback book, it analyzes your breathing via a sensor buckled around your waist, then plays a series of musical tones to guide you to a lower breathing rate. Several clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals find that RespeRate lowers blood pressure, and the FDA approved it for over-the-counter sales in July 2002 for just that purpose.
