Here is what science has to say on this topic. Meditation and yoga, as well as some other mind-body exercises have one thing in common: particular breathing techniques which include low respiration rate and long exhalations. These breathing techniques are very effective when you need to lower anxiety and high blood pressure. In many cases people who suffer from anxiety also have a high blood pressure condition so breathing exercise to reduce blood pressure usually helps to lower anxiety. This is a great exercise to lower blood pressure. It helps to lower blood pressure instantly.

 

Slow and deep breathing triggers the body’s natural relaxation response by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing anxiety and heart rate, significantly reducing anxiety and blood pressure. In plain language it means that if we slow our breathing and make longer exhalations this will trigger our central nervous system to reduce anxiety and lower blood pressure.

 

It has been scientifically proven now that this breathing techniques works (see references below) and one can actually objectively observe their effect, i.e. by measuring blood pressure before and after the exercise

Another great thing about BreathNow app which makes it different from other similar apps is that it measure how your body responds to a particular breathing exercise by measuring heart rate and change in stress level. Just place your finger on the camera and flashlight at the back of the phone.
