Tip of the week

Run your fingers over your lips.

The parasympathetic nervous system works to relax and slow down the body’s response. Activating it helps you manage stress and anxiety. One way to do it is through the lips, since they have many parasympathetic fibers spread throughout them. Just run one or two fingers over your lips in a very light and soft way for a few seconds. You’ll sense a calm and relaxed feeling, which means it’s working.
