Take a few slow, rhythmic breaths with long exhales. Slow, rhythmic breathing activates the vagus nerve—a large nerve that travels throughout the body and links your brain with your heart, lungs, gut, and other major organs.
To practice slow, rhythmic breathing, breathe in for a count of 5, rest for a count of 2, then breathe out through either your nose or mouth for a count of 6. if this is too difficult, you can begin with a 4-2-4 rhythm and work up to 5-2-6.
