29 Dec Balance out the parasympathetic nervous system.
Some call it the rest and digest part of the autonomic nervous system. We balance out the sympathetic nervous system and parasympathetic nervous system we balance our breath. Take a moment wherever you are right now and observe 5 breaths. Do you notice a difference in length between the inhale and exhale? Try it again and see if you can extend the exhale for 5 breaths. How do you feel? Then assist the breath in being balanced by having the inhale the same length as the exhale. You may not feel anything at first but if you keep trying this exercise daily, you may begin to feel how your body is lighter or able to release tension.
