Have you forgotten how to breathe? Most of us have!
When we get stressed or overwhelmed our breathing moves to the upper chest area and we trigger off the body’s ‘fight or flight’ mechanisms. This stops you thinking clearly, floods your system with cortisol and adrenalin, and leads to physical, mental and emotional health issues.
In episode 2 of Monday Morning Mindfulness you’ll discover how to press ‘pause’ on this – and use a simple mindful breathing technique to let go of that stress and increase your oxygen levels – your brain’s food – essential for making great decisions and feeling happier.
