It doesn't matter whether you're a famous movie star millionaire or an Mancunian mum of four - everyone and anyone can suffer from anxiety.

Luckily, the clever *ahem* boffins in Hollywood have come up with a new system to tackle the disorder, Transformational Breathing.

So, what's it all about? Well, it's a bit like the breathing used in meditation that calms your body down and reduces blood pressure.

The technique centres around inhaling and exhaling at certain rates (roughly each inhalation should be three times longer than exhalation). You'll need to breathe in for three seconds and out for one.

This allows more oxygen and 'energy' to enter your body and allows you to exhale any 'emotional energy' that's stored up in your body, according to Alan Dolan, aka 'the breath guru'.



Another key feature of Transformational Breathing is keeping your mouth open. Yes, you'll look a bit dorky, but Alan reckons you should be able to put a finger between your teeth at all times. You should also avoid holding your breath between breathing in and breathing out if you want to reach a meditative state...clear as mud, right?

Kate Hudson and James Bond star Naomie Harris are said to be fans of the technique, which has worked it's way across the pond to North London.

One doctor talking to the Daily Mail, seems to think the technique works because of a build up of carbon dioxide in the blood stream, making you feel relaxed.

What do you think? Is it worth a try?
