Stress and anxiety are normal responses from or nervous system. What happens is that when we feel overwhelmed, our body enters a state of fight or flight because of the over stimulus. Even if there is nothing really threatening happening, the feeling of burnout and stress can take over and make the mind feel uncertain and flustered.

The breathing accelerates, and blood pressure rises to help move nutrients and oxygen reach major muscle groups in order to prepare for defense. By actively taking the time to ground yourself, and soothe the anxiety, you can purposely slow down the breathing and send the blood back where it belongs. The 3-3-3 technique is a quick tool to do so.
