“Nasal breathing instantly stops the fight flight response and calms your anxious feelings by bringing you into the present moment.”
Some Pillars are easier to implement than others. For me the thought of cold water immersion without a wetsuit... did not fill me with joy. Now I have 5/7 shower's a week straight cold water, or I start warm then the last few minutes are cold. I definitely feel invigorated and alert (once my breathing and heart rate have settled after a few deep nasal breaths, which takes a few seconds). I look forward to warming up once the shower stops. This alert feeling will last a few hours post shower. This is a fantastic upgrade for the brain, because it stops the inflammatory response from glutamate, (the toxic neurotransmitter in our brain, which causes brain cell death which can happen from a result from incorrect diet, not enough sleep, ingesting of toxins like alcohol, smoking)
This is 1 great effective, simple, cost effective tool for preventing dementia, and Alzheimer's.
So definitely worth trying.... I now look forward to my cold showers, or even better a cold bath, especially post exercise or where I can a swim outside in the ocean, lake or pool.
