A quick, 5 minute reset will work wonders for your nervous system, and generally, your well-being.
"Your vagus nerve is key in downregulating the stress of modern life and upregulating your psycho-spiritual-emotional wellness. It’s the longest cranial nerve, running from the base of your head down to your gut and innervating your heart, intestines, and other organs along the way. Simple exercises like the one in this video stimulate the vagus nerve, helping to turn off your stress response (your sympathetic nervous system) and activate your relaxation response (your parasympathetic nervous system). I think we could all use a little more of that, and it only takes a few minutes." (Dr. Mark Hyman)
