The technique of a physiological sigh is simple and can be easily performed at any time:
- Take a slow and deep inhale through your nose, filling your lungs, and then take another breath in on top of that breath.
- Pause briefly
- Exhale slowly and deeply through your mouth, as if sighing.
- Repeat the sighing process several times, inhaling and exhaling slowly and deeply.
It is important to make sure you are relaxed and not forcing the sigh. You should feel the air moving in and out of your lungs and notice the sensation of your chest and abdomen expanding and contracting with each sigh.
You can practice this technique whenever you feel stressed or need a moment of relaxation. Over time, you may find that incorporating a physiological sigh into your daily routine helps you to manage stress and promotes overall well-being.
It has been shown to have benefits for the nervous system by resetting the respiratory rhythm, promoting relaxation, and reducing stress.
The act of sighing can help to regulate the carbon dioxide levels in the body and reset the respiratory rhythm. It also signals to the brain that there is no immediate danger and promotes a sense of relaxation. Sighing has also been shown to reduce stress levels, potentially by modulating the activity of the stress response system.
