TIP 1: BREATHE We do it everyday without thinking; however, breathing is actually a fast, effective and free way to calm our whole body. Whether you try a meditative breathing technique (such as square breathing) or simply take five deep breaths each morning, this practice turns on the vagus nerve, which activates our parasympathetic nervous system. “Check in with yourself and acknowledge what you need from the day is important,” says Nurick.
TIP 2: EXERCISE We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, exercise is so important. “Use the time you save from your commute to get out for a run or to do an online yoga class,” recommends Nurick. While the novelty may very well have worn off when it comes to at-home workouts, this is an easy way to keep your body moving.
