"Life With Breath" In Reducing Stress Webinar
Time & Location
About the Event
Therapeutic mindful breathing is arguably the most comprehensive approach we have to reducing stress and building physical & psychological resiliency. To appreciate the role of this mind/body strategy as a tool in stress reduction, it’s important to understand the relationship between breathing, the relaxation response and the function of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), which controls the function of the many of the systems and organs being negatively affected by stress.
Chronic stress and burnout negatively affect the parts of the brain responsible for self-regulation and the on/off switch from sympathetic (SNS) to parasympathetic (PNS) affecting our ability to be physically and psychologically “resilient”. In order to retrain the body/mind, we have to direct attention to balancing the ANS. Specifically, more tools and strategies initiating the PNS. In this webinar, Ed is joined by Nancy Rothstein a.k.a. The Sleep Ambassador. Ed & Nancy are excited to talk with you about the relationship between sleep, breathing and stress.
