Feeling overwhelmed by stress? There’s a new way to help manage it: cyclic breathing! Studies have shown that just five minutes each day of this breathwork practice can be more effective at calming your mind than mindfulness meditation or other breathwork techniques. It’s really easy to do, too – all you need to do is take two short breaths in through your nose and one longer exhale out your mouth. The best part? Cyclic breathing can slow down the number of breaths per minute, reducing stress.
I’ve tried this a few times and it seems to work well.
So take some time for yourself and try out this simple yet powerful technique today!
