How To Calm Down "Instantly" When Stressed

A TikTok Dr is going viral for sharing his "tool for calmness" that he promises will give you "instant" relief during a moment of stress, and who couln't use this right now. Dr. Karan Raj posts informative videos on health related content for his 4.6 million followers and this can help you calm down quickly and deal with stress and it seems to work

The advice is pretty simple. “Try humming for 10 seconds of gargling water in your throat,” Dr. Raj says. “Or just singing.” But why does that work? (sounds too easy right?) He explains that doing any of these activates the muscles of the back of the throat and the vocal cords, which are connected to the vagus nerve. And that helps you “access a parasympathetic state more easily,” which then helps you feel relaxed.

Dr. Raj points out that as a “bonus benefit” of this technique, it also increases your heart rate variability, which means your body is more capable of adapting to stressful situations.
