Take a Breath:
Introducing Cyclic Breathing
New research suggests a daily, five-minute breathing practice can effectively help manage your stress.
It’s called cyclic breathing, a breath work practice that’s also known as the physiological sigh. It proved to be more effective at improving mood than mindfulness meditation and other breathwork techniques.
In a study published in the journal Cell Reports Medicine, cyclic breathing proved to be more effective at improving mood than mindfulness meditation and other breathwork techniques. It was also the best way to slow down the number of breaths the participants took per minute, which had a calming effect.
