Strengthen Your Mid-Prefrontal Cortex (MPFC)
As you strengthen your MPFC, you develop greater self-awareness and can more easily regulate your moods and energy level. You'll be freer from automatic reactions that can be counter-productive, and better able to respond to people and circumstances with greater wisdom, more compassion, and in ways that are ultimately more effective. And you'll feel more deeply connected to others. These are all capacities that are associated with having a well-developed MPFC.
Develop Your Heart-Brain
Your heart brain works together with your MPFC to bring balance and harmony to the different parts of your brain, your nervous system, body, mind, and emotions. As you develop your heart-brain, you naturally begin to respond to people and situations with greater wisdom, kindness, and effectiveness.
Live More From Your Core
The more you develop your MPFC and heart-brain, the more you'll feel as though you have a core of calm, ease, strength, and contentment inside you - and - that you can access and draw on it in increasingly challenging situations.
Develop Your Capacity for Mindfulness
The breathing videos can help to relax your body, and bring calm and focus to your mind. This is an excellent preparation for mindfulness meditation in which you practice observing your thoughts, feelings, and sensations from a center of calm, non-judgmental awareness.
Lower Your Blood Pressure
Research shows that some people can bring their blood pressure down to healthy levels just by doing 15 minutes of 2:1 breathing, four times a week. You can practice 2:1 breathing with our 2:1 Breathing videos and then practice on your own (5-minute versions of the videos will also be available in our store.)
Reduce All Kinds of Pain
As you breathe along with the videos, you may find that if you also focus on relaxing during each exhalation, you'll experience some relief from the pain.
