Host John Chester talks with local DFW health enthusiast Heather Lynn Darby about music’s effect on chronic stress. Chronic stress is undermining the health of many – if not most – people today. Heather Lynn Darby started xlnt Nutrition and Fitness to offer online resources that teach practice-based nutrition, in other words, habits.
Heather and John discuss the nerves that play a role in stress reduction. Discover how eating differently is also a brilliant strategy. Heather focuses on short term health. It only takes 1% of change daily to eventually reach those long term goals AND develop new habits that can have a 180 effect on your life.
Most people react to stimuli with a ‘fight or flight’ mechanism, rather than a ‘rest and digest’ protocol. Music may be stimulating for a workout, for instance, but that same music might actually contribute to chaos if it pushes you over your maximum capacity. This discussion unearths it all!
Heather suggests we slow down –
- Chewing – calms the nervous system, and causes us to eat less.
- Smiling connects to inner ear bones.
Discover how the vegas nerve connects the brain to our organs and gut biome. Humming and singing are like doing reps for your nervous system!
