Breathing for Anxiety by
Anna Gallagher

Breathing is a very powerful tool and gift. When we become triggered it affects our entire nervous system. We begin to only breath in the top portion of our lungs. Using you breath to fully and slowly expand your lungs again totally regulates the nervous system again. Stopping the digestive response and the physical symptoms of anxiety. Regulating our heart rate and returning our mind to its relaxed left hemisphere activity.
When we are triggered we operate of the right, survival side…. Hence the catastrophying negative overthinking…the halt of digestive activity and resulting nausea…the raised heart rate as believe we’re under threat due to overwhelm.
Your breath can be used to heal all anxieties by practice of its use whilst confronting those fears. Completely rewiring your nervous reaction through practice.
