Looking for stress relief? Maybe you should be looking inside your own head. Built inside ourselves we have a calming system. We are designed to relieve stress. We, however, choose not to use it. Sometimes we have forgot how to access it altogether. So now instead of simply using our internal calming systems, we sometimes reach for drugs or other substances to help calm us down. We should say “NO MORE” to drugs designed to help us sleep, relax, and relieve anxiety and turn our own natural systems back online! For more on how to do just that, please read below:

Tapping into the vagus helps us achieve both brain and body health, which is the right balance between relaxation and stress.
