Controlling your breathing when under stressful situations can lower blood pressure, a rising heartbeat, and jaw tension. Learn how wearing an anxiety necklace can benefit your health in all walks of life.
What is a Deep Breathing Anxiety Necklace?
Those who suffer from panic attacks or anxiety disorders have undoubtedly tried various techniques to relieve uncomfortable anxiety-related sensations during stressful times. One technique is wearing a piece of anxiety jewelry - anxiety necklaces, in particular.
Anxiety jewelry is not a new concept. A quick search on Google will bring up options such as essential oil bracelets, fidget rings, or jewelry made with stress-relieving crystals. However, there is one category of anti-anxiety jewelry that is more beneficial than others: deep-breathing anxiety necklaces.
These stainless steel whistles are built using a unique airflow design that assists deep breathing and mindfulness. As you already know, it is quite easy to begin hyperventilating during a panic attack. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy to stop. This is where a deep breathing anxiety necklace can be useful.
Simply blowing into the whistle provides the ideal resistance level needed to control your breathing. Therefore, relieving hyperventilation and taking your mind off your panic attack.
Positive Health Effects of Controlled Breathing
Controlled breathing has many positive health effects, especially concerning anxiety. It prevents hyperventilation, improves your immune system and decreases stress levels dramatically.
Below we look at a handful of the positive health effects you can experience by using an anxiety tool that promotes controlled breathing.
Reduces Dry Mouth
One of the side effects of having an anxiety attack is dry mouth. Anxiety sufferers are prone to hyperventilation when they panic; they breathe in more through their mouth than their nose. This means the air coming into the mouth can dry it out.
Using controlled breathing techniques with an anxiety necklace helps you focus on getting as much air into your lungs by breathing in through the nose and out through pursed lips.
Deep breathing is also proven to reduce stress levels and initiate a relaxation response. Stress can have a dramatic effect on our bodies, such as increasing our heart rate, raising blood pressure, and causing chest muscles to tighten.
By breathing more deeply into your stomach, it signals for your sympathetic nervous system to calm down. This has a domino effect on the physical sensations associated with stress. Therefore, reducing any feelings of stress or anxiety.
Stimulates the Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system is closely connected to breathing patterns and its functioning is vital for overall health. The role of the lymphatic system is to aid our bodies in fighting infections, viruses, and illnesses. It does this by circulating fluid throughout lymphatic vessels into the lymph nodes. However, it needs two things to circulate this fluid: movement and deep breathing.
Deep breathing plays a large role in the functioning of the lymphatic system. Inhalation and exhalation naturally create a pumping motion that stimulates the lymphatic system. By breathing deep into your diaphragm, you are promoting the movement of lymph fluid throughout your bloodstream and through the lymphatic system.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Stress levels can drive up blood pressure just as easily as they can increase heart rate. This is due to the activation of the sympathetic nervous system (e.g. the “fight or flight” response). A deep breathing tool such as an anxiety necklace activates the parasympathetic nervous system.
The parasympathetic nervous system is known as the “rest and digest” response. It signals our heart rate to decrease which in turn causes our blood vessels to dilate. As soon as our blood vessels dilate, this allows for our blood to flow more freely, therefore lowering blood pressure.
Helps Support Correct Posture
One of the more surprising health benefits of using controlled breathing techniques is improved posture. The act of deep breathing itself strengthens the diaphragm and other secondary muscles in your neck, shoulders, and back.
To be able to breathe deeply into the stomach, you need to have core stability and be sitting correctly. If your posture is poor, this is will decrease lung function and you won’t receive the benefits of deep breathing. Over time, practising correct posture while controlling your breathing reinforces the natural curvature of the spine and reduces tension in the upper body.
Have you ever noticed that you feel nauseous in certain situations? This is because your gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to emotions and hormonal imbalances. The gut-brain connection is largely influenced by factors such as stress and anxiety. That’s why you may get a “butterfly” feeling in your stomach before an interview or presentation.
Using a deep breathing tool such as an anxiety necklace can help keep the gut-brain connection regulated. By stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, you can reduce stress which will improve digestion.
