Did you know that breath impacts not only our physical body but also our mind? In my latest blog post I start to explain how every breath impacts not only our physical body in terms of sensation, expansion and contraction, but it also impacts our fight or flight response. In terms of the power of breath for stress or anxiety regulation, this can show the impact it can have. When you experience anxiety many times the breath causes the symptoms we experience. When people experience anxiety sometimes their breathing patterns change, which can cause an abnormal level of carbon dioxide in the blood, this can trigger symptoms of lightheadedness, heart palpitations, sweating and numbness, which confuses the physical body to feel like it may be suffocating.
