I Tried It: Alternate Nostril Breathing
Have you heard about alternate nostril breathing?
This is an incredible way of shifting your nervous system from fight or flight stress mode to rest and digest, relaxation mode.
You’re essentially breathing consciously, taking in more air and reducing your blood pressure.
I decided to try it after reading so much about it. Here’s how you do it:put your thumb over your right nostril and take a deep breath in through your left nostril. Hold, covering your left nostril with your index finger. Release the breath through your right nostril. Repeat, taking the breath with your right nostril.
I found that I was much calmer after doing this and any anxiety I was feeling started to drift away.
Try it and let me know how you feel!
