davidji’s new book destressifying: The Real-World Guide to Personal Empowerment, Lasting Fulfillment, and Peace of Mind shows us how there are so many triggers in our life that exacerbate the challenge of nonstop stress. davidji’s “destressify” Guided Meditation Series Vol. 1 & 2 each feature three simple daily meditations you can use to quickly get back onto the path of destressifying. You can check out Vol. 1 here.
We think you’ll especially enjoy Track 2 “Touchbreath.” If you find yourself in the throes of chronic stress, where you are living in a state of emotional fight or flight, then most likely your breathing is probably pretty shallow or erratic and your sympathetic nervous system is calling the shots. Making a conscious decision every hour throughout the day to take a few deep, relaxing breaths in through your nose — and long, sighing exhales out through your mouth — to activate your parasympathetic nervous system will offset the initial surge of the sympathetic nervous system and the subsequent constricting physical effects.
