The ONE Very Best Thing You Can Do to Feel Awesome Every DayNov 03, 2022
There is ONE thing you can do each day to feel less anxious and more awesome. Not only that, but this one thing can also help to strengthen and tone your nervous system so you have a better balance of energized calm.
This is the ultimate state of wellbeing.
To be focused, alert and at ease – all at once – may feel like a dream. But when you have healthy breathing habits, and the breath and nervous system are working in conjunction and functioning their best, this is what you’ll experience.
You have the power to influence your own nervous system. The main control knob for this is your breath.
We think this is one of the most important things you can do. It’s easy. It’s effective. It only takes 2 minutes. It's called Crocodile Breath.
Crocodiles are big and heavy. Let your body be big and heavy on the ground. It will send a message of relaxation to your brain while helping you breathe more deeply. Deeper breathing = lowered stress response.
This is probably the best way to teach your body this better breathing habit. Practice daily and you’ll start to feel less anxious and more awesome. Then, when you are feeling overwhelmed, worried or stressed, your body and mind will be primed to take a full breath that sends a signal directly to your nervous system to calm down.
This is an example of a tiny transformation. Easy, short tools that can help you develop greater self-understanding and self-regulation.
