How Straw Breathing Can Calm You Down and Tame Your Stress Response
In this incredibly helpful video, therapist Julia Harkleroad demonstrates a simple stress-reduction technique called “straw breathing” that engages our parasympathetic nervous system. This part of the nervous system helps us unwind and calm down. By using something as simple as a straw, we can breathe in the perfect way to signal our brain to relax. Using a reusable metal straw will ensure that you will always have a straw on hand, and can make this breathing technique part of your wellness routine.
