Do you know the secret to emotional regulation?
The reason breathing works for managing emotions comes in the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
When faced with a situation that leads to high emotions, controlled conscious breathing allows you to stimulate the vagus nerve, which activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This lowers the heart rate and reduces the production of adrenaline in the body, keeping you calm in the process.
Remaining calm is crucial during times of stress. When you’re relaxed and focused, you can assess situations more clearly and efficiently, allowing you the opportunity to make the best decision possible in that moment. So, the next time you find yourself facing a moment where emotions are running high, take a moment to control your breath. You’ll be surprised by the difference it makes.
I invite you to join the monthly online New Moon Breathwork Experience. Purchase your online tickets here.
Experiencing difficult emotions doesn’t mean you’re “out of control.” It’s human nature to feel various emotions, and when you’re feeling sadness, anger, or frustration, reminding yourself that it will pass is helpful. Allowing yourself to feel the emotions is much healthier for your mental and physical well-being.
A 2017 study in mice suggests that specific nerve cells connect breathing with mental and emotional states. On a neurological level, slow breathing can help promote a feeling of tranquility. You can help your own nervous system calm down and regulate itself by using breathwork to simulate a more regulated state for your body.

Our emotional and mental states clearly influence our breathing patterns. Studies have shown that our thoughts can directly change our breath pattern and subsequently affect our physiology and disease processes. In fact, simply becoming aware of our breath has been shown to have a direct influence on anxiety, pain, and regulating our emotions. On the flip-side, we can learn to manipulate our breath consciously and use it as a tool to change our thoughts and emotions. When we slow down and deepen our breath, our whole body becomes relaxed. This may help us sit with and let go of difficult thoughts or emotions. We can store psycho-emotional pain or traumas in the form of physical tension or pain in the body.

The breath can be a window into noticing the links between our body, our emotions and our thoughts. We can learn to use our breath to rewire these learned patterns and convince our brain that we are actually safe and do not require the alert!
