This 4-7-8 breathing method has a powerful effect on the nervous system because when exhaling for longer periods than inhaling, the nervous system shifts into parasympathetic mode- also known as rest and digest. This helps to alleviate anxiety, and aids in drawing your awareness to the present moment. Practice this breath anywhere, at any time to find presence and relax both the mind & body.
