Let’s face it we are in a stress epidemic. One of our keys to return to our centre and find peace is within our breath. When we take a long slow exhale/sigh, we send immediate signals to the part of our nervous system (parasympathetic) that releases commands to our organs, hormones and bodily functions to relax, rest and digest. Bio-hack your system, release stress and anxiety and return to bliss with long exhales.
Take 10 big, long exhales to let go right now. Breathe in fully, shoulders are relaxed. Exaggerate the sigh as you exhale (make a noise if it comes!) and let your diaphragm fall on the exhale as you let go completely and deeply. Breathe slowly and fully through the nose slowly for another few minutes to bring your rhythms in to harmony. Enjoy the rest of your day!
