Need help relaxing? 💆♀️ If you are feeling overwhelmed, Regul8’s RELAX can help you take the edge off, along with practising self-care. If you are having trouble staying calm during this stressful time, try these three tips along with RELAX:
1. Deep breathing – deep breathing stimulates the vagus nerve, which runs from the head down the neck, through the chest and to the colon, activating your relaxation response and lowering stress levels.
2. Progressive muscle relaxation – Progressive muscle relaxation is a two-step process in which you tense and relax different muscle groups in the body. Progressive muscle relaxation can help you release tension in the body and is great combined with deep breathing for additional stress relief.
3. Meditation – Mindfulness meditations are great for self-care and can aid in reducing stress and other negative emotions.
