Low Energy & Poor Motivation
If you are someone who struggles with anxiety or depression, can I ask how you breathe? Did you know that if you are a mouth breather, you are constantly stimulating the sympathetic nervous system? This is your fight or flight response. You’re constantly running away from that saber-toothed tiger. When you are mouth breathing, usually this also means a low postured tongue. When the tongue is low, it is not stimulating the vagus nerve ending. The vagus nerve helps in the regulation of breathing, digestion, anxiety and more.
