Stress...Nose Breathe:)

Breathing done through the nose is neurologically proven to calm the nervous system. Like a baby when it is in stress mode the binki goes in and the baby calms down...nose breathing. When breathing is done through the nose it connects to the nervous receptors in the brain that communicates to the body to calm and return to the conscious mind vs the subconscious fight or flight mode. When I have had times of struggle and intense trauma or stress I forced my self to take at least 8 slow breathes through the nose.

 Next time you find yourself in a whirlwind try nose breathing..its also a great tool to teach the kids when they feel uptight or nervous:)
