A Simple Breathing Exercise for a Balanced Mind

A Simple Breathing Exercise for a Balanced Mind | personal trainer | Scoop.it

Pranayama, or the yoga of breathing, is often described so esoterically that non-yogis have a hard time embracing the practice. Personally, I was intimidated by pranayama even after years of practicing yoga asana (poses). But the benefits of pranayama are tremendous, and there are several breathing exercises anyone can incorporate in just a few minutes a day.

Everything You Need to Know About Adrenal Fatigue

Everything You Need to Know About Adrenal Fatigue | personal trainer | Scoop.it
Your health is on a continuum. On one end you have optimal health, and on the other, you have chronic illness. Your adrenal health works in the same way.

 

The primary role of your adrenal glands is to produce and regulate the stress hormone cortisol. Your adrenal glands also produce sex hormones, estrogen and progesterone, and they produce your neurotransmitters, adrenaline (epinephrine), norepinephrine, and dopamine. These hormones and neurotransmitters regulate your metabolism and communicate with other organs, like your brain, kidneys, and reproductive system. However, chronic stress can suppress your adrenal glands, causing them to release insufficient amounts of these necessary hormones.
