This is one of the fastest, most effective, scientifically backed, self-directed ways to get our bodies out of the stress response in real time. 

It utilises hard wired mechanisms in our body to initiate this response.



How To Do A Physiological Sigh?

  1. A double inhale through the nose
  2. And a long, slow exhale through the mouth


Super Simple, Super Useful! 

Use it anytime to relieve stress in the moment, or try a few before bed to help you sleep.
