Did you know that breathing is the fastest, simplest and most effective way to shift your mental, physical and emotional state?
For example, when you're stressed out you may notice that you breathe faster and more from your upper chest.
When you're relaxed, you breathe at a slower rate and more from your belly.
So if you're feeling stressed out, tired or worried, you can quickly switch into a relaxed state by simply changing the way you breathe.
Breathing is unparalleled in its fast and predictable ability to regulate your nervous system, helping you shift out of a stressed state and into a restful state within minutes.

I signed up for this breathing course hoping to reduce my anxiety and along with this, also gained myriad benefits including better sleep, more energy, and empowered knowledge about developing and utilizing my own internal resources.

It’s one thing to know how your systems work, but I experienced it on a whole different level of awareness.
Beck, 35, London
My goodness... I feel more myself than ever before! I am top-end of the dyslexic spectrum, and my concentration is usually like a butterfly on LSD half the time, but now my brain is more switched on and in-tune - it’s like the fog has cleared.
I’m seeing such a difference within myself. My brain felt like an enemy before, but now it feels like a friend, and it's making me so darn happy!
I recommend 'Be Here Well' to everyone and anyone! If you want to be more in-tuned with the real you - this is for you! 😍
Jay, 73, Northampton
The everyday curses of being overrun with jobs led to brain overload and an inability to sleep well and deeply. This meant that the next day always began with the stress of all the jobs that needed to be achieved.
The breathing techniques have really changed that around, and now the jobs are surmountable and life is a lot more peaceful.
