Living Stress Free with the Incredible Vagus Nerve

sighWhen we are stressed or fatigued our breathing becomes more shallow and less variable. Our lungs function optimally when they are dynamic and changeable, adjusting to the nuances of our experiences. Our respiratory function does not work as well when we breathe in one particular state for too long. It is not natural. A deep sigh resets our breathing, loosens the diaphragm and provides a feeling of relief.

When we sigh we stimulate the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve is an incredibly important part of our body and mind. This article is dedicated to honoring the vagus nerve and learning ways to activate it to reduce and prevent stress; to feel healthier, happier and more relaxed.

Part 6: No Effort Required

Senses

 

During Meditation Awareness all of our five senses are open and unrestricted. We hear every sound that enters our ears, we see every sight before us in our immediate surroundings, we taste any tastes that may be present, we feel our body's sensations as we sit or walk, and we smell any aromas in the air...

Part 7: Know Thyself

Knowing

 

Some of you might be thinking: "Well, experiencing Meditation Awareness may be enjoyable and it may even reduce my stress but what practical purpose does it have? Experience is all well and fine but..."
