When you are very scared, it is easy to forget to breathe. However, you need oxygen to save yourself.

Imagine that you are in a PLIVO situation.

  • Breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds
  • Hold your breath for 4 seconds
  • Breathe out through your mouth for 4 seconds
  • Hold the exhale for 4 seconds

It is possible to practice breathing techniques to calm you down in emergency situations. If you do this exercise regularly, there is a better chance that you will remember it if you need it.
