agitated breath = agitated thoughts
tranquil breath = tranquil thoughts

breathe to calm down.
and why is breath associated with calming down? because it does. if you slow down your breathing rate consciously, you can slow down the whirlwind of wild thoughts.
breathe calmy and you will calm down.
one other thing, in order to concentrate, first one must relax. if there is no relaxation, there can really be no focus. ever wonder why that happens?
breathe deeply. calm down. and then try to solve it. (and you'll probably need to breathe and calm down many times along the way.)
