10 Easy Steps for Breathing Calm Into Your Anxious Brain

10 Easy Steps for Breathing Calm Into Your Anxious Brain | Health and Beauty | Scoop.it

How meditative breathing soothes your hyper-alert brain and restores calm.


Calm is your brain’s normal default setting. It allows your physiology to run smoothly in a state of “rest and digest.” This relaxed calm gives you a sense of internal composure and emotional balance. When you’re humming along in calm, you are serene, focused, and content. And after any "survival mode" stress reaction, your brain is also wired to automatically recover this calm state.


But what if you’re feeling moderately stressed-- perhaps on edge, high strung, excitable, irritable-- with no recovery in sight? Perpetual moderate stress is a result of modern life, which can keep you in “hyper-alert mode.” 


Unfortunately, when moderate stress is perpetual, a moderate amount of stress hormones are coursing through our veins, and we aren't equipped with an automatic reset button that shifts us from hyper-alert back to calm. As a result, your brain can get stuck there, resulting in that feeling of chronic stress and anxiety.
