Polly’s Pearl #2 – 1:2 Breathing!

1:2 Breathing automatically slows down the heart rate, lowers the blood pressure, and induces a deep relaxation response in the nervous system. This breathing literally takes the body out of the “fight or flight” stress response, and brings a feeling of being centered, grounded, and peaceful. This breathing exercise requires a bit of concentration and practice to become comfortable with it, but once you are, you’ll love it!
