Energy, Fall, and Head: Breathe

We all know what stress feels like. But do you know what is happening behind the scenes? Read below...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's called the fight-or-flight response... your blood rushes away from your organs and to your limbs (so you can run faster), your heart rate and breathing become rapid (to provide the energy and oxygen needed to fight), and you may even tremble (your muscles are tense and primed for action). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The problem is, many of us are accessing this response several times per day – when we're stuck in traffic, faced with a looming deadline, in an argument with our partner. The result? Our digestions and other bodily functions suffer. We don't take deep, nourishing breaths. We put unnecessary strain on our hearts, and we’re constantly tense. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Luckily, Ayurveda offers a solution. The next time you're feeling stressed, try these simple steps: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1️⃣ Breathe. Try this Ayurvedic breathing technique: Breathe deeply through your nose for 1-2 minutes. Make sure you can feel your belly rise and fall. This signals your system to remain calm.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2️⃣ Relax. Take advantage of the mind-body connection. Do a mental head-to-toe scan, and consciously relax each part of your body as you go. Unlock your jaw, drop your shoulders, unclench your fists.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3️⃣ Feel. Everything is connected, and emotions have a powerful influence on your physiological responses. Mentally name 5 emotions you are feeling, such as "I feel anxious, impatient, angry, etc." Naming your emotions makes it feel more "okay" to have them, and helps calm your entire system.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4️⃣ Watch. Non-judgment has the power to transform any moment. Instead of attempting to control the situation, try observing it. When you take a step back, while still remaining present. you're less likely to do or say something you'll regret.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5️⃣ Allow. In truth, fighting against the present moment is a futile exercise. Make this your mantra: "Accept, then act." When you treat the present moment as something you have chosen, everything changes.
