Tips for reducing anxiety, stress and overwhelming emotions.

A butterfly hug is a therapeutic exercise that can help with anxiety, stress and feeling overwhelmed.Think of it as a simple way to find grounding whenever you need it. 🦋Begin by taking a few deep breaths, knowing you are pausing to feel better. 🦋Use your arms to cross over your chest, making sure the tips of your middle finger are touching right below your collarbone. 🦋While in this position, close your eyes and focus on your breathing. 🦋Then, tap on your chest with each hand, mimicking the visualization of a butterfly flapping its wings on your chest. 🦋Find a rhythm in your breath and continue to tap on your chest. Practicing the butterfly hug will help you connect to the calmer side of your nervous system, known as the parasympathetic system.When we are in this zone, we are more relaxed physically and emotionally. In addition, we are lowering our cortisol, which is the primary stress hormone that we produce.
