Our breath is one of our greatest tools to combat stress

Updated: Dec 15, 2022

The breath is a reflection of our mental state and changing our breath will alter that. The connection between our breath and how we feel often goes unnoticed. During times of stress, our breath can become shallow, move from our diaphragm to our chest, or stop altogether. If we take a few full deep breaths, you will likely notice your shoulders soften, your jaw unclenches, or your brow unfurrow. The connection between our breath, body, and mind is sometimes less under our control than we would like to believe. It is unique in that we can take control of it anytime we need it to help us to counter the effects of our body’s stress response.
