Breathing & Nervous System

“We get a sympathetic response every time we inhale We get a parasympathetic response when we exhale If you want to get amped up, inhale longer than exhale If you want to slow down, exhale to a longer count than inhale For balance: 5-6 seconds in and 5-6 seconds out We can take control of our nervous system and many immune functions with breathing”
