There are several breathing exercises that you can easily try yourself to relieve or prevent a headache:
When you find it difficult to exhale for more than 4 or 5 seconds, we recommend that you stop trying to force long exhales, especially while doing breathing exercises to relax. It will be much more relaxing to end the exhalation naturally, even if it’s a few seconds early.
To help you, we created moonbird, a physical, handheld breathing guide. Moonbird expands and contracts in your hand. Simply follow its rhythm with your breathing and you'll be more relaxed in just a few minutes. We also provide real-time biofeedback via the moonbird app so you can see the impact of the exercises on your body.
By combining the intuitive breathing guidance with the biofeedback, moonbird helps you to connect your mind and body and calm down, or fall asleep fast. Whenever, wherever.
Try moonbird for 30 days risk-free, with no obligation. You only pay when you decide to keep your moonbird. The most important thing for us is that moonbird really works for you.
