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 adrenaline 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.
For the nerdy
Keen to do some more research on breath and the brain?
