One of the most challenging side-effects of hypoglycemia is energetic depletion. The more severe the low, the larger the energetic deficit, often rendering us physically exhausted, mentally foggy, and less capable of being as present as we would like.
Breathing is not a cure, but it will help you feel better. When you know that you have tools to help you recover faster and feel better after any blood sugar swing, you experience diabetes and life differently.
Studies show that people who feel more confident in managing diabetes, even when they make mistakes, have better outcomes.
What if that shift started with one breathing practice?
In this quick breathing tutorial, I'll walk you through my go-to technique for self-inducing balance, a perfect go-to to recover from any hypoglycemia episode (obviously after you've treated it with glucose).
If you missed last week's video for developing hypoglycemia willpower, check it out here.
