Stress and Anxiety Relief for tertiary Students
One of the most overlooked aspects of daily life is how we breathe, and yet bringing awareness to our breath can profoundly change our lives and the lives of students for the better. It’s easy, quick and simple to add a few minutes of breathing practice to your day. It's accessible in every moment and costs nothing as our breath belongs to each of us.
Some of these breathing techniques can help alleviate stress in the moment, while others are preventative exercises that can be practiced regularly to help fend off the physical reactions to stress, anxiety and depression. When these reactions are experienced on a daily basis it can be debilitating and often lead to far more severe disorders if not managed.
Students experience benefits such as; a focused and clear mind, reduced stress, anxiety and depression, reduced cravings and addictions, better sleep and many more!
