Every minute we breathe in and out without giving it much thought. In fact, we naturally inhale and exhale every 2-3 seconds. Although breathing is an unconscious action, it can also be brought under conscious control. By learning to do so, we can affect our bodies in a positive way. Studies have found that slow breathing is a natural tranquilizer for the nervous system. It activates your parasympathetic nervous system, resulting in a calming and relaxing effect. In this session, you will learn about the 4-7-8 breathing technique and how it can help you reduce stress and fall asleep fast.
