It is said that the following methods can help seals stay calm and focused during high intensity.
They use box breathing to manage stress:
Inhale, hold, exhale, and hold again for four seconds each.
This technique is said to activate the hypothalamus, releasing a neurohormone that blocks the release of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, which triggers the body's relaxation response.
It's like a psychological reset button that puts individuals back in control of their breathing and emotions, ultimately helping them perform at their best in extremely challenging situations.
Try it. Does it work?
