Like ambertaylor if done correctly it works. I close my eyes and just take very long and slow breaths in and out. I almost feel like I'm falling asleep after a few minutes of doing it.
Yes, but only if you know what you are doing.
One of the things we've discovered in pscyhology is that the mind-body connection works both ways. Emotions are actually often a response to your body. If all of the sudden your pulse gets higher and breathing quicker, your mind is affected by this. So if you're angry, it's EASIER to calm down if you treat both your body and mind at the same time.
Try looking up "body scan" exercises. These help you recognize where in your body stressors might be occurring, and help you eliminate them. For people who can't regulate their emotions through cognitive exercises alone, this is an excellent treatment. But it benefits everyone to some extent.
punching the wall may help
Yeah it activates the 10th cranial nerve which is the command central for the parasympathetic nervous system which calms you
u have to breathe in and out anyway if u want to live dummy
I wish it did. But it doesn't.
