For mental health week, a simple practice for dealing with stress, the 4-7-8 breathing meditation. Taking only a few minutes it promotes a sense of calm by lowering blood pressure. The practice can be helpful for anxiety-related sleep problems by helping you to slip into a relaxed state. This practice calms the nervous system and, for those prone to panic attacks, can help to prevent the attack from escalating. It works by increasing the ratio of exhalation to inhalation, causing a parasympathetic response which lowers the heart rate.
Really great to have my guided version featured in Urban’s blog
