A simple technique for inner CALMFeb 09, 2021
Did you wonder how you can consciously tap into the power of your nervous system to trigger your sense of inner calm and reduce inflammation in your body? Studies have shown many techniques used in yoga do just that!
Studies and researches have shown that healthy or high Vagus Nerve activity is associated with better mental and physical well-being. The vagus nerve is an essential part of the parasympathetic nervous system (PSN). It is responsible for calming organs after the stressed ‘fight-or-flight’ adrenaline response to danger. If we have more enhanced vagal activity, our bodies can relax faster after stress responses.
Research shows that vagal tone (strength of the Vagus nerve activity) varies for each individual. A high vagal tone (strength of the Vagus nerve activity) makes your body better at regulating blood glucose levels, reducing the likelihood of stroke, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. The low vagal tone, on the other hand, has been associated with chronic inflammation.
One of the effective techniques to enhance your vagal tone is using the breath and gaze point. I've recorded this pranayama technique.
It is more effective if you keep the practice as part of your daily routine even it is five minutes.
