4-7-8 Technique
Play • 24 min

This episode I dive into how stress and anxiety disrupts the pre-frontal cortex. This part of the brain is responsible for good and bad decision making. I provide the 4-7-8 Technique, which has been the most potent breathing technique I have in dealing with my own anxiety and stress so I can become a better version of myself. I share this episode with you all, to help provide another tool in your belt, in combatting against your own anxiety and stress. I am grateful for everyone one of you and I wish you nothing but the best.
