Learn to relax in seconds, with no equipment, wherever you happen to be.

With the start of a new year, we all might want to take a deep breath – literally! Join us for a look at one of the simplest yet most effective ways to manage stress: breathing. Specific patterns of breathing allow the body to replenish itself with oxygen, leading to a state of enhanced relaxation almost immediately.

Presenter: Carolyn Lamparella, EdS, LPC, Program Director, Preferred EAP

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • The 4-7-8 breathing technique,* which when practiced regularly, can aid in falling asleep.
  • How relaxation practices help bring the body back into balance and regulate the fight-or-flight response we feel when we’re stressed.
  • How to foster relaxation anytime, since techniques like these take almost no time, require no equipment, and can be done anywhere.

*The 4-7-8 technique was developed by Andrew Weil, MD, founder of the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, where he also holds the Lovell-Jones Endowed Chair in Integrative Rheumatology and is Clinical Professor of Medicine and Professor of Public Health.
