How can breathing help with my headaches?
Your emotions can affect your breathing pattern. If you’re anxious, you may hold your breath and speak in a high-pitched voice as you exhale. Or if you feel depressed, you might sigh and speak in a low-pitched voice. Get familiar with your breathing patterns so you can learn to change them in ways that will help you relax.
