When we experience stress, we may notice increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, increased stomach acid resulting in stomach pain, heartburn etc. or feelings of anxiety, anger, depression etc. There are many possible effects of stress – this is just a sample!
The parasympathetic nervous system undoes these effects – decreasing blood pressure, improving digestion, gaining feelings of calm, tranquility etc.
To manage stress you need daily practice, a routine, a time to relax, and the right mental attitude.
