Many people use CBD and THC to reduce anxiety.
There are other simple tools that also help, including exercise, clean diet, less caffeine, therapy, massage, yoga, healthy relationships — and many more.
And there’s one stress-lowering technique that’s simple, free, and always available: breathing.
In order to thrive, our bodies require plenty of oxygen, and we get it automatically, without thinking.
Like water, our bodies will find a way to get it. But we can do our bodies a favor by staying hydrated intentionally and drinking several glasses of water a day.
We can also treat ourselves to less stress and a dose of well-being by intentionally exchanging oxygen with deep breathing exercises and/or meditation.
Those quiet moments of focused breathing can provide numerous physical and mental benefits.
Sometimes the relaxation and reflection they make available allow us to quiet our minds, such that we naturally see the actions we can take that will modify our circumstances, such that we bring more balance to our lives.
The physical benefits are enormous, and connected.
Here’s an article, Advantages of deep breathing exercises, from The Times of India, that clearly lays out the benefits of breathing:
