From Chaos to Calm
In today’s fast-paced world, it can be easy to get caught up in the chaos and stress of daily life. But did you know there’s a substance that can help protect your brain from the negative effects of stress and anxiety?
What is GABA?
GABA, which stands for Gamma-Aminobutyric acid, is an inhibitory neuron that decreases the activity of neurons in your brain associated with the stress response. Think of it like the brake pedal for your brain. It helps to regulate your stress levels and promotes feelings of relaxation and calmness. In addition to these mental benefits, GABA also decreases heart rate and blood pressure, while also improving both the quantity and quality of your sleep. Not bad huh?
So how can we increase GABA levels?
The latest research shows there are several effective ways to do so:
- Yoga has been shown to increase GABA levels by 27% after just an hour-long class.
- Relaxation techniques like meditation and mindful-based stress reduction exercises have also been found to boost GABA levels.
- Journaling, for just 20 minutes, has been shown to increase levels by 5%.
- And if you’re looking for a relaxing physical option, massage has been found to increase GABA levels by 36% in some studies.
Whether we’re dealing with work-related stress, personal issues, or just simply the chaos of everyday life, GABA can protect, relax, and improve our resilience.
