HOW TO CLEAR BRAIN FOG
Often when we think of breathing protocols, we are trying to calm ourselves down, either mentally or physically or both. Generally speaking, every time we breathe out for longer than we breathe in, we stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system which will create more relaxation.
But what happens when you breathe out more powerfully than you breathe in? Just the opposite. It fires things up. And sometimes, we need just that. Sometimes, we need to feel more alert and alive.
So, as part of this series on the power of breathing, I wanted to include a protocol here that I call, Firing Up Your Brain. If you suffer from brain fog, this breathing protocol could make a difference. Not only will it help you to think more clearly but it will also help to energize your entire body.
This protocol will require you to sit or to stand. You need to be able to move your arms freely. Before we start, do a quick scan and sense into how alert your mind is right now. Give it a number between 1 and 10 and when the exercise is over, check it again and hopefully, you’ll feel a new sense of alertness and mental clarity.
