What is Breathwork?
Breathwork is a therapeutic practice that involves intentionally manipulating one's breath in order to affect their physical, mental, and emotional states. There are many different types of breathwork, but they all involve conscious control of the breath, often through specific breathing patterns or techniques.
For neurodivergent individuals, breathwork can be especially helpful in regulating their minds and bodies. Neurodivergent individuals may experience sensory overload, anxiety, and other symptoms that can make it difficult to focus or manage their emotions. Breathwork can help to calm the nervous system and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
Breathwork can also improve mental clarity and focus, which can be beneficial for individuals with ADHD or other conditions that affect attention and focus. By slowing down and controlling the breath, individuals can bring their attention to the present moment and become more grounded in their bodies.
Overall, breathwork can be a powerful tool for individuals with neurodivergent minds to regulate their emotions, improve focus and concentration, and reduce feelings of stress and overwhelm.
