Diaphragmatic breathing is one of the most simple yet most effective ways of improving one’s overall health and wellbeing with the least amount of cost and time investment. Similar to Mindful breathing. It is one technique, simplified in three stages for depth of experience and understanding which can be easily integrated into any modern lifestyle.
Research demonstrates significant body-mind changes in the simple process of diaphragmatic breathing. Each breath, millions of sensory receptors in the respiratory system send signals via the vagus nerve to the brainstem. Fast breathing pings the brain at a higher rate, triggering it to activate the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight response), turning up stress hormones, heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, sweat production, and anxiety. On the other hand, slowing your breathing induces the parasympathetic response (rest and digest – relaxed state), dialing down all of the above as it turns up relaxation and mental clarity.

Students: Your parents and teachers are doing their best with the resources and beliefs they have. You are here to teach them. Change in your parents and teachers, starts within you.
Teachers: You are making an impact on students’ lives every day. Whether that be positive or negative. They look up to you as a role model. Change in your classroom starts within you.
Parents: You build the foundations and values for your children. The life you lead, speaks louder than any words ever will. Change in your kids, starts within you.
Together we have an opportunity to create real change. Anxiety and stress could one day be extinct and only have a place in our history. We as human beings can work together to create the movement towards happiness, peace and freedom.
