Breathing to Reduce Anxiety and Improve Health and Well-Being


The simple act of breathing is something we all do every day, yet most of us give it little to no thought. Both ancient wisdom and modern research indicate that breathing is much more than simply delivering oxygen to the body; how we breathe can have profound effects on our mind, body, and spirit.

In this noontime webinar, we will discuss the mind/body connection of breathing and learn how habitual breathing patterns and responses to stress can increase symptoms like anxiety, abdominal discomfort, neck pains, headaches, and more. You will also learn the practical application of breathing techniques that have been shown to reduce symptoms. With these practical tools, you will discover how to be more aware of your reactions to stress and shift your breathing patterns intentionally during the day to improve your well-being.

This class will be recorded and a temporary link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants, which will be active for one week. Stanford University benefits-eligible employees must attend the live session in order to receive BeWell incentive points.
