The Importance of Parasympathetic Activation

Updated: Apr 22

What a beautiful way to spend the day!

We need adequate amounts of rest and play in order to show up as our best selves in our lives. It is so easy to be busy these days. Our smartphones constantly connect us to a whirlwind of information. This connection can be a great thing, but we still need time to step away and let ourselves relax. You will be glad that you did!

When we are constantly on the go, our sympathetic nervous system is in full swing giving us the energy we need to keep on running. When we relax our parasympathetic nervous system kicks in, and the body goes into healing mode to undertake important functions that it has been storing in the “important but not urgent” file.

Benefits of activating the parasympathetic nervous system include:

  • Detoxing the body

  • Fighting infection

  • Decreased anxiety

  • Improved digestion

  • Increased energy

  • Improved circulation

  • Lower blood pressure

Ways to activate the parasympathetic nervous system include:

  • Meditation

  • Massage

  • Exercise

  • Nature

  • Downtime

What are your favorite ways to relax and reap the healing benefits of the parasympathetic nervous system?
