A simple technique to reduce stress is to pay attention to your breathing. During the day, take a few small breaks and for a couple of minutes focus on your breath as you inhale and exhale naturally. This simple technique brings you to the present moment, it relaxes your body and slows down your mind.
Wisdom says living in the present moment is the key to a joyful life and paying attention to your breath is an easy way to bring you to the present moment.
This is backed up by science as well. Stress is part of your fight or flight response. Paying attention to your breath, on the other hand, de-activates your fight or fight response and reduces stress naturally.
Living a stress free life is easy and effortless when you live with wisdom.
