Exhale Stress And Inhale Calm

Home » Exhale Stress And Inhale Calm



Have you been wondering how to manage stress?

We know it’s hard!

Our bodies are constantly under attack from stressors large and small, ranging from physical pain and injury to emotional distress, workplace pressure, and everyday annoyances like traffic jams and long lines at the grocery store. How we react to these stressors has an effect on many aspects of our lives—our health and well-being, our ability to function in the workplace, our relationships with friends and family. 

When we’re stressed out all the time, it can feel impossible to maintain a healthy balance between work life and personal life. 

And it’s not just our own health we’re talking about here! 

Stress is also a major factor in how we react to other people: when we’re feeling stressed out, it makes us more likely to snap at others and less likely to extend ourselves for others when they need help.

The good news is that there are plenty of stress-relieving tools out there that don’t require us to take another pill or spend another hour at the gym.

One of the worst symptoms of stress is that it imposes on your ability to live a full life. But you can get back on track with just a few simple adjustments.

Breathing is a powerful tool for stress reduction, and it’s something you can do anywhere.

Relaxing Breath is the simplest, easiest exercise you can do. 

It’s great when you’re feeling stressed and just want to take a break, but it’s also a good starting point for more advanced exercises. 

All you have to do is put one hand on your stomach and the other on your chest.

Then inhale through your nose for 3 seconds—your stomach should rise as you inhale rather than your chest—and exhale through your nose for 3 seconds.

You can repeat this as many times as you like.

You must learn to let go.

Release the stress.

You were never in control anyway.
