Breath the Stress Away
Feeling stressed can have a significant impact on the way people breathe. The breath becomes shallow and rapid, and concentrated in the upper part of the lungs only. Over a long period of time, such breathing patterns can have a seriously detrimental impact on physical and mental health. To counter this habit, the ancient Ayurvedic practice of Pranayama is one of the most powerful tools of self-care we have available to us, to help control the panic and calm the nerves in all of life situations.
COMO, which runs Pranayama sessions at several hotels and resorts around the world, including COMO Cocoa Island in the Maldives, COMO Uma Canggu in Bali and COMO Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos, has explained three powerful Pranayama practices to counter anxiety.
Sleep is one of the most powerful tools of self-care we have available to us. Getting the recommended eight hours a night has been shown to increase productivity and concentration. More importantly, sleep plays a critical role in our health, helping to lower inflammation, reduce our risk of heart disease and strengthen our immune systems.
COMO offers five simple tips to help get better sleep each night.
