Breathe Bonus

Tip: If you have the capacity: give any tense, low-vibe-energy or tension in your body a color. With each breath, imagine that color draining into and ground and as you inhale, absorb a clear bright light, filled with replenishing, positive energy.

Supplements shown to improve the stress response/ decrease cortisol:

- Magnesium

- Hibiscus

​- Passion Flower

- Ashwagandha

- Astragalus

- Holy Basil

- Magnolia Bark

- Probiotics

To activate parasympathetic nervous system, other than breath work:

- HUGS. Make them long and meaningful!

- Exercise that promotes long and slow exhalation: yoga, tai chi, walking, pilates

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking medications, consult with your doctor before starting a supplement routine. It is always optimal to consult with a health care provider when considering what supplements are right for you.
