Hello 👋🏼 , I’m Jo Lau
Your emotions affect your breathing. But did you know that your breathing pattern regulates emotions
1
When relaxed, you use primary breathing muscles. In stress-mode, you use accessory breathing muscles
2
If your body is in constant stress, you create the habit of using your accessory breathing muscles.
3
In contrast, relaxed breathing tells the brain to activate the “rest & digest” nervous system.
4
If you get into the habit “stressed” breathing, your body will constantly be in “flight/fight” mode.
5
By understanding this, you can see how your breathing patterns can actually regulate your emotions!
6
Good news is that you can regulate your emotions better through changing your breathing patterns!
