We can be walking around in chronic sympathetic nervous system response (fight or flight) sometimes without knowing we are. In this anxious state, key signals occur in the body - shallow, quick breath, racing heart, tight jaw, and many other symptoms. Practice this exercise whenever you need to. It calms the body-mind and encourages a parasympathetic response (rest, digest, and relax mode). Learn to be aware of how your body responds to daily stressors, and what you can do about it.
