Many a time, we feel overpowered by stress and worry, whether professional or personal. But it is extremely essential to feel relaxed and calm to manage the situation in a composed way.

As per integrative health coach Neha Ranglani, breathwork can help you relax in such situations as it allows one to think clear with a much better, focused mind.

“Breathing consciously is not only about bringing in oxygen into your body, it’s more about telling your brain that the environment is safe and there is nothing to stress about. Conscious breathing activates the parasympathetic nervous system which allows you to digest, perform a metabolic activity, assimilate and all things that our body needs to do to constantly repair itself,” she mentioned in an Instagram post.
