3 Simple Hacks to Immediately Regulate Your Nervous System:Draw Figure 8s. Take your index and middle finger, keep them together, and make a figure 8 pattern around your eyes. As you apply different pressures, you’ll instantly feel the right and left brain start to integrate. You can even switch up the speed and direction. Alternate Nostril Breathing. By breathing through one nostril at a time, we can immediately feel a sense of deeper breath, centeredness, and anxiety leaving our bodies. Block the right nostril first, inhale from the left, then block the left and exhale on the right. Start again by inhaling on the right and the cycle continues. Practice Ha! Exhales. Put your hands into fists, inhale, and on the exhale release all of your breath and energy as you bend forward with HA!. This will calm you down, relax you, and release your nervous energy.
