Stress stinks and it’s important you have intentional and practical ways to deal with it.
Unmanaged, stress can cause a long list of issues from insomnia, tension, aches & pains, to high blood pressure and lowered immunity.
It also can affect your appetite, your focus, and your mood.
One way you can minimize the negative impact of chronic stress is to learn how to turn down your central nervous system’s “fight, flight, or freeze” system (the sympathetic nervous system) and activate its “rest & digest” system (the parasympathetic system).
You can do this by meditating, doing two 5-minute sessions of breathing exercises, journaling, slow walks in nature…
All of these things are (even more) awesome for helping your brain stress less.
Let’s put it to practice!
Here’s a simple and proven breathing technique that will help you feel calmer almost immediately.
