Stress Awareness Month - How conscious breathing can help reduce stress.

How often do you think about your stress levels? Perhaps a more important question is how often do you take action to reduce stress within your mind and body?



April is Stress Awareness Month. This helps generate awareness of issues around stress, promote discussions around the causes of stress and how to reduce it leading to better mental health and overall well-being.


According to a nation-wide survey conducted by Mental Health Foundation, 74% of adults claimed that they have experienced or are unable to cope with stress at a certain period of their life. The arrival of Covid-19 and the frequent lockdowns - and social isolations associated with it - have left a mental scar on the general public.

A study conducted by the Stress Management Society found that 65% of people have dealt with high levels of stress since the beginning of Covid-19 restrictions. A feeling of disconnection, an unpredictable situation, and a precarious future were determined as the three main factors of stress.


How Conscious Breathing Can Improve Your Mental Health


Breathing is a natural function similar to sleeping and including conscious breathing in your daily routine will elevate your mental health leading to smooth functioning of your overall body.


Deep breathing is said to calm stress and anxiety and helps our minds to be more relaxed and focused. It is proven to help move our body from a stressed state to one of rest and relaxed focus by activating our parasympathetic nervous system. By slowing down our breathing, and extending the lengths of our exhalations, we signal to the body that we are safe and activate the "rest and digest" response.

Since the two systems are effectively opposites, this suppresses the stress response. This assists our body to relax and we feel a pleasant sense of wellbeing.
