Video: Balancing Mood with Vagus Nerve Stimulation
By Erica Zelfand

Through simple body hacks, we positively affect our mood, focus, and productivity. In this video, explain the gist of how the nervous system reacts to stress, and I introduce the concept of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) and polyvagal theory in a fun and easy-to-follow way. I also offer guidelines on how to use body-based activities like diaphragmatic breathing, laughter, alcohol cessation, and forest bathing to cultivate a calmer, happier, more focused version of yourself.
