Imagine a time when you had to slam on your breaks because you almost got into a car accident. What did your body do? How did you feel? You were likely aware of changes in your heart rate and breathing. Your body has an amazing ability to naturally prepare you for danger.

As it turns out you can activate the Relaxation Response (state of rest that alters physical and emotional responses) by simply paying attention to your breathing. Yep… Mindful Breathing. Try it right now. Take a moment to simply notice the rise and fall of your chest, of your belly. Try this for two minutes and notice how you feel.mind
“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” Amit Ray
HERE IS THE SCOOP:
When you experience a stressful situation your body can go into fight or flight response. Your hypothalamus says; “Oh crap” and releases chemicals that activate your sympathetic nervous system to help you deal with a threatening situation. Then your adrenal glands release things such as adrenaline and cortisol. This triggers an increase in heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure AND more.
The Vagus Nerve controls the parasympathetic nervous system which is also activated during times of stress. This system helps the body to rest, digest, and recover. The Vagus Nerve is unfortunately overlooked but is vital to you managing your stress. However, BREATHING, Mindful Breathing (paying attention to your breath on purpose) regulates your nervous system.
