Stress Management can be literally in your hands today!
There are many systems and methods promoted to take control of stress in our lives, usually involving training courses away from the workplace at inconvenient times.
We at The Breath Connection have developed an App for smartphone or computers, the “MyButeyko App” that you can use to train yourself to reduce the impact of all stresses you meet in your life.
The common factor that accompanies stressful situations is the triggering of the fight or flight response. This primitive automatic response puts the body on high alert physically and mentally ready to deal with the potential life threatening event. Usually the event is not in the least life threatening but our body does not take the risk and assumes any trigger could be a danger. The fight or flight response can cause over a thousand physiological changes in our bodies and most of them we have little or no control over such as release of adrenaline, increased histamine production, increased output of corticosteroids, increased sweating, raised blood pressure, suppressed immune system, etc. However, there are three reactions we can take conscious control over with practice and they are: muscle tension, mental tension and breathing.
By progressively learning to reduce muscle and mental tension and our breathing rate all the other physiological reactions are also reduced, so damping down the effect of any stress. Your training can be done wherever you are, on your smartphone or on a computer, each exercise may take less than ten minutes and is recorded on your smartphone.
If you are connected to a MyButeyko Registered educator they will immediately be able to see your results and feedback support and comments. You will also be able to track your progress yourself on a graph on your phone. Although you may use the app alone for training we recommend you connect with a qualified Buteyko Educator to receive support and monitoring to ensure rapid progress.
