The simplest way of reducing stress is to focus on learning simple rhythmic breathing. When using this technique, you’re activating the rest, digest and repair mode of your nervous system. Rhythmic breathing can help with mood regulation and even depression.
It works both ways – bad posture will restrict your breathing, and disrupted breathing patterns can negatively influence your muscular system.
Breathwork can be one of the most effective ways of working with emotions and mental states to bring in wholeness and wellbeing.
