I've been working on this as well. Youtube videos were my go to when I started. Meditation is the best way to become accustomed to mindful breathing in my opinion. When i meditate i just focus on my breath and it may sound weird but if you put your tongue to the roof of your mouth it helps..

It's not so much about actually breathing to calm yourself down it's about getting more oxygen into your bloodstream which is why I think it helps with anxiety.

That is great advice. I wish that I had thought about that myself.

In addition to the meditation I often do breathing exercise in the car on my commute to work.
That is great advice. I will keep that in mind about doing zen12mediation.
