Braincare pillar 2: Breath
Why our breath is essential for good brain health, mental well-being, and beyond.
A breath of fresh air
We breathe all the time. Literally. But when was the last time you thought about your breathing for more than a minute or two?
Our breathing patterns tell our brains whether they should be worried or not. They work in tandem with stress hormones to prepare us for a dangerous situation. But, we can also use that same mechanism to calm ourselves down.
Control the breathing, control the mindset.
