Breathe2Relax is a portable stress management tool which provides detailed information on the effects of stress on the body and instructions and practice exercises to help users learn the stress management skill called diaphragmatic breathing.Breathing exercises have been documented to decrease the body’s ‘fight-or-flight’ (stress) response, and help with mood stabilization, anger control, and anxiety management. Breathe2Relax can be used as a stand-alone stress reduction tool, or can be used in tandem with clinical care directed by a healthcare worker.

Really helpful


I got this app to help my 10-year-old deal with anxiety and panic attacks. It turns out that I use it as much as she has. Not only does it help me relax, but repeated sessions help quiet my mind and help me fall asleep. My only complaint if you could call it that – it’s actually a suggestion – is that options for 10 minutes, 15 minutes, and 20 minutes cycles be provided. I would prefer not to have to start the cycle over after every 16 breath session. However, it is amazing what can be accomplished in 16 breaths.

Fantastic except videos


This app has a simplistic layout, which breaks down the information into easy to understand preset categories. Providing reason and relevance as well as practical guided skills for managing stress through breathing. As a community mental health case manager I will be encouraging my transition age youth clients to use this tool. It will also help me to practice self care in my daily life. My one fault with this app are the missing instructional videos. “Show Me How”, How to Breath, Biology if Breathing, and Effects of Stress on the Body” all have an error stating “No Video by that ID”.

Excellent, Simple, Useful


This is a simple to use app that is an excellent tool to assist in breathing exercises.
The only thing it doesn't do is breathe for you :)!
It might be even a little better if the user could add their own personal background graphics and increase the amount of breathes in each session. Aside from that it is a five star app!
Thanks for offering it for free.
