The vagus nerve is a cranial nerve (comes from the brain) and is involved with your heart and other organs to function properly.

It’s also a big part of your parasympathetic nervous system – that’s rest, digest, and heal (as opposed to the sympathetic nervous system, which is fight, flight, or freeze). 

When your vagus nerve isn’t functioning well, you may experience sleep issues, digestive problems, fatigue, anxiety, elevated blood pressure, etc. 

Stimulating your vagus nerve is very simple. Here are a few options that you can incorporate into your day: 

  • Splash cold water on your face
  • Laughing
  • Humming or singing
  • Supplements
  • Slowing down your breath
  • Chiropractic
  • Meditating
  •  Yoga

This sounds super simple, right? Because it is. And what makes it even better is how effective it is!

As for the supplements I mentioned, I love CALM, Neurosyn, and MoRS from Systemic Formulas.

CALM is there to support your mood and relieve stress. 

Neurosyn helps get your brain back on track when you notice yourself getting more forgetful and stressed. 

MoRS, amongst other things, supports a positive mood. 

So, which of the above habits will you start with today? Personally, aside from my weekly chiropractic adjustments and supplements, I love singing in the car…
