P - Paced Breathing
When we focus on our breathing, we’re able to tap into our central nervous system and kickstart that parasympathetic nervous system. If you’re feeling buzzy or stressed, dial into your inhales and exhales and slow your hyperactive nervous system. When you use paired breathing, the goal is to make your exhales longer than your inhales: try a 4 count inhale followed by a 6 count exhale. Repeat for 5 cycles of breath or until your stress has reduced.
