Stress Management Techniques

Note: These techniques are not meant to substitute for medical advice. Please consult your physician before practicing any of these methods.
An individual under stress inhales and exhales with shallow breaths.  By consciously inhaling deeply and exhaling deeply, one can manage the "flight or fight" response of the parasympathetic nervous system.  Deep breathing also stimulates the lymphatic and circulatory systems. An increase in oxygen intake can fight the creation of free radicals and cleanse/detoxify the body.
