“The breath has a direct connection to the mind and is one of the fastest ways to settle the mind down during moments of excess stress. A simple yogic breathing technique, pranayama, takes advantage of this connection between the breath and the mind. Slow, deep breathing shifts the body’s chemistry from a fight-or-flight response to a rest-and-relax state. The best part is you can do this breathing exercise anywhere and at any time.” - Kulreet Chaudhary, MD
