Mammalian Dive Reflex


A natural way to calm distress is the mammalian dive reflex that all mammals have. When we dive underwater, our mind will now allow us to panic. We panic, we breath in air. So we can manually  activate the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS).


Step One- Head down 

Step Two- Put something cold on your cheeks. Water or frozen peas. 

Step Three – hold for 30 seconds to a minute.
