Simple Breathwork Exercise to Ease Stress and Anxiety

breathwork nervous system regulation Aug 27, 2021

During times of anxiety and overwhelm, this simple breath exercise will help bring your nervous system into balance. During Breathwork, when the exhale is longer than the inhale, we help our body activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

While this particular breath exercise is a very short and simple exercise, it can provide immediate results when done properly.

If you want to go even further into breathwork, I invite you to join one of my upcoming virtual breathwork classes.

What is Breathwork?

Breathwork is an active meditation that enables us to drop out of our active, critical mind and back into the body. This technique is an effective tool to release stagnant energy, stuck emotions and trauma for physical, emotional and spiritual healing. It allows us to let go of what no longer serves us, while connecting us to our intuitive, higher self.

Breathwork can be helpful for:

  • embodiment
  • stress and anxiety
  • dealing with grief
  • connecting to yourself and increasing self love
  • connecting to your intuition
  • increasing creativity
  • getting clear visions on which direction to take in your life
  • healing yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually
