Bestow Beautiful Breathing Ritual
A daily wellbeing ritual for leading your body into ‘Rest and Repair’ mode.
Stress is an unavoidable part of our lives, however it is within our power to support our wellbeing by improving our stress resilience.
Today, we’d like to introduce you to a simple wellbeing ritual that makes building stress resilience into your life as natural as breathing.
This beautifully simple breathing ritual has the power to flip your nervous system from ‘flight or fight’ to ‘rest and repair’ in a very short space of time.
The breath is a connection between the conscious and unconscious mind. Usually the unconscious mind will control our breathing without effort, or even awareness, on our part. However, we can consciously control our breath if we choose to – slow it down or speed it up – and our body will respond accordingly.
This makes the breath unique; you cannot consciously control many other body systems that are the domain of the unconscious mind. It is a helpful to recognise the breath as a bridge between these two mental states.
