With as few as 10 slow exhales you can feel a difference.
By slowing down the exhalation phase of your breath, you activate the Rest and Recovery system. This triggers your Vagus Nerve to go to work calming your body, organs and mind.
Imagine you’re gently blowing out a candle or making a wish on a dandelion.
If you’re feeling particularly tense, try 20-40 slow exhales or repeat 10 slow exhales every hour or so over the day. The benefit will build up.
