        • Famous and not-so-famous, anxiety can attack any of us at any time – for no apparent reason. It has been shown that regular diaphragmatic breathing can eliminate panic attacks entirely in some people. In others, breathing correctly has greatly reduced the frequency and intensity of their attacks.
