Breath, nervous system & everyday stress
We all run busy lives those days and, although stimulating, our rhythms often lead us to exhaustion and cumulated stress. Prolonged stress creates lots of imbalance in the function of the body and in extreme cases may lead to burnout and depression. The simplest, innate, and most effective system to counterbalance stress is our breath.
What you will learn
All sensory functions in our body are governed by nerves, the autonomous nervous system. All thoughts and perceptions are also governed by nerves, the central nervous system. Breathing is an inherent function that links the autonomous with the central nervous systems and equilibrates not only our mental state but also the function of the heart. Stress hijacks our system and creates disbalance. It uses a lot of energy in detriment of functions such as digestion and immunity and maintains the body in a hyperarousal state where it is difficult to relax and enjoy a fully recovering sleep.
