Changes as we age are inevitable, but staying healthy allows us to slow down the aging process and maintain a vibrant Third Age.
One way to maintain your body as you get older may surprise you – somatic breathing.
What does that mean?
Somatic breathing is a type of breathwork that focuses on bringing awareness to the breath and using it to release tension and improve overall well-being. There are many different somatic breathing techniques, but they all share the common goal of helping us to breathe more deeply and efficiently.
If you’re looking to improve your health, it can all start with your breath! Learn the best ways to get started with somatic breathing through The Mind-Body Stress Reset.
Somatic Exercises to Increase Well-Being
For many of us, stress can feel like it’s just the way things are. Not only does that not have to be the case, but when we let stress “settle in” like that, it can dictate everything about how we think, feel, and act.
How can we soothe stress before we’re stuck in a rut of stress and burnout?
That’s the answer Rebekkah LaDyne offers through her book The Mind-Body Stress Reset. Packed full of powerful and effective tools for calming stress, she’ll teach you how to stop stress in its tracks with somatic breathing exercises.
These exercises can help to reset your nervous system, alleviate stress flare-ups, and boost your overall health.
The Mind-Body Reset Protocol
Based on more than two decades of work in the field, LaDyne developed the mind-body reset (MBR) protocol that she teaches in this book.
She knows that we often neglect our somatic intelligence, and that can cause health issues.
Within the book, you’ll learn to recognize the negative patterns and behaviors that have become ingrained in your brain over the years and how to remove them through her MBR method.
Following her practices, you’ll also find yourself more resilient to stressors as they come up and be able to better self-regulate.
Using Somatic Exercises to Improve Your Health
Somatic breathing doesn’t just help our mental health. It also is particularly beneficial for aging adults. Studies have shown that somatic breathing can help to:
- Reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease.
- Improve cognitive function.
- Boost the immune system.
- Reduce muscle and joint pain.
Even a few minutes of somatic breathing each day can have a positive impact on your overall health and well-being. If you’re ready for a reset, grab The Mind-Body Reset, make some time for yourself, and start breathing your way to a healthier and more vibrant life.
