Breathing is a very powerful tool. When you breathe in certain ways, you can calm your nervous system. When we breathe slowly and consciously, we are taking control of our physiology.
Doing this breathing twice a day will help calm your nervous system in the moment and it will also change your physiology over time. Now, this breathing pattern can put you to sleep quickly, so just before bed is a great time to do it. Or whenever you feel anxious. It’s really easy!
This breathing technique calms the nervous system. Some people do this breathing technique for as long 5 minutes/day to condition their nervous system. Of course, check with your doctor first if you have any medical issues.
