Hi friends, ❤
There is doubt that in these uncertain times, anxiety and stress have drastically increased across the globe. Anxiety causes hypertension, which often can lead to physical health concerns, and steals away our peace and joy. While it may not be always possible to completely get rid of anxiety, breathing (pranayama) have been proven to be of great help with managing anxiety and stress.
I was fortunate enough to train and learn from many outstanding yoga teachers in my travels in India. One thing that really stood out to me was the power of breathing, and the positive affect it had on me, almost instantly. When we consciously engage our breath, it helps to shift the energy around in our body and as a result, many may experience a great relief from stress and anxiety. The following video is a short 10 min video that will guide you through 3 breathing exercises that can be helpful with anxiety and stress relief; however, if you find this helpful, I encourage you to further explore the beauty of pranayama by doing your own research. I can sincerely say that these breathing exercises has greatly benefitted me in life whenever I came across stress or anxiety; they gave me an ability to bring myself back to the present moment, and let go of anxious thoughts and feelings.
If you feel like you would like to do more rounds of breathing for each exercise, simply pause the video and continue for as many rounds as you feel necessary. For best results, I encourage you to practice these on a regular basis! I sincerely hope that you find this helpful!
