Cleanse Your Mind with Open’s Mental Detox Program

If you haven’t heard, breathwork is the quickest way to improve your mood. When using the right technique, it can provide an instant relaxation response by activating your parasympathetic nervous system. Controlled breathing has been proven to positively impact our physiology, such as lowered blood pressure and heart rate. It also reduces the reactivity of stress hormones in the bloodstream.

The best part is that you only need a few minutes to gain significant benefits. In fact, five minutes of breathwork has been found to outperform mediation for mood and autonomic regulation and lowering stress, according to Dr. Andrew Huberman at Stanford University.

Open’s Mental Detox Program

Meet Open – a mindfulness studio that blends the best of breathwork, meditation, movement, and sound into one app. Their classes are designed for all levels, whether you’re a first timer or an advanced student.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, they launched a free 14-day program called Mental Detox, which will help you remove common “toxins” that get in the way of your mental and emotional well-being. This is what you can expect:

+ Focus: Alleviate rumination and overwhelm (be freed from the trap of intrusive, repetitive, and negative thoughts)
+ Regulate: Reduce stress and anxiety (and get to the root cause of the tension)
+ Activate: Overcome lack of energy and motivation (anyone who suffers from frequent procrastination will adore this)
+ Breakthrough: Releases the emotional residue of feeling stuck (come out the other side feeling lighter)

Most of us know that our nervous system plays a significant role in almost every aspect of our health and well-being. “No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or strong you are, none of it matters if you’re not breathing properly,” says author and breathwork expert, James Nestor.

Directing the pace and pattern of your breath helps you regain control of your body and mind, unlocking the potential for deeper sleep, better focus, less stress, natural energy, and overall vibrancy. All of the techniques are science-based and created by experts in mindfulness, fitness, and neurobiology.

The beauty of this program is that Open makes it easy and fun to create a daily practice that you’ll actually look forward to. You get an inspirational quote after every class and the app helps you track your progress to keep you motivated.

We all desire and deserve to live a life that isn’t strained by anxiety or dampened by depression.
Likewise, Open believes that emotional well-being is everyone’s right, which is why they’re exclusively offering The Chalkboard Mag readers the Open Mental Detox 14-Day Program free and access to the app for 30 days, when they implement the code TCM-30.

Open users have lots to say about their own experience using the app. “Open has changed my life,” says one user. “I haven’t felt this mentally refreshed in years,” adds another. You get the idea. Now it’s your turn.
