Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day from Shallyn’s Physical Therapy and Wellness Services.  I am truly grateful for all of my patients that have contributed to the success of Shallyn’s.

Here are a couple of heart healthy tips to get you through, sometimes, not a super peaceful day:

Take 3 deep breaths.  Fully exhale…push the air out of your deepest part of your lungs…then inhale using that diaphragm fully.
Smile…even if you don’t feel like it.

These practices create a parasympathetic nervous system shift.  What does this have to do with heart health?  It lowers both your blood pressure and stress related hormones.

So, go ahead, take a deep breath and smile.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
