4 -7 – 8 Breathing – Calm down your Autonomic Nervous System



One of, if not THE easiest, way to get back and stay in control of your ANS is using your breath. Numerous studies found that just 2 minutes of deep slow belly breathing (like the 4-7-8 breathing technique) can calm the nervous system drastically, leading to better decision-making, less errors and ultimately more performance and well-being. Further research shows that balancing your ANS may even help ease symptoms of mental and physical health conditions such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and pain.
