GREETINGS from Betsy Thomason

Shortly after Thanksgiving, I received a phone call from a reader of Just Breathe Out. She called on the outside chance that I would answer the “unknown” call and was dumbfounded and grateful when I did. Recently, she said, a doctor diagnosed her with “elder anxiety.” She refused medication and wondered if the BreatheOutDynamic system would help alleviate the anxiety.

I explained how BODs physiologically helps you manage anxiety. Then I added that there are a number of ways to resolve anxiety. Simply by calling me, she was practicing one method of relieving anxiety.

Creating connection and then staying connected is essential for everyone’s mental health, not just people who are called elders. During this holiday season when lots of folks are gathering for parties, and a lot of other folks are home

alone, it’s important to understand the importance of being connected, whether it means smiling at a stranger in the grocery store or picking up the phone and calling someone you admire but have never met.

Use your outbreath to be as strong as possible. Then take a risk to get and stay connected. Life is short. Just breathe out
— a holistic way to alleviate anxiety and stress, manage pain, conquer addiction,

and build confidence.
