There is also a good deal of technical information and also a number suggestions for ongoing exercises within this recording, so we suggest you have a pen and paper handy.

The key points are:

  • You have a threat response (we all do) fight, flight and freeze.
  • Your breathing is a predictor, an indicator of this and a contributor to this.
  • You have a huge Vagus Nerve which is inter-related with your breathing and emotional responses.
  • You can tone up your Vagus Nerve through practising particular breathing techniques. Examples are within the recording.
