Dear Yin Weaver,
Babies were born breathing from the diaphragm. But as we get older we lost the ability a little more with each new stressful event. If you are a shallow breather you might be finding the Alternate Nostril Breathing exercise a challenge. Training yourself to breathe from your diaphragm again would be a big help. Not only will it help you with the ANB, all by itself it is a great stress buster.
Here is a YouTube link to a video which teaches you how to breathe from the diaphragm.
