The Neurobiology of Grace Under Pressure

8 habits that stimulate your vagus nerve and keep you calm, cool, and collected.

When was the last time that you had to perform gracefully in a high-pressure situation? How did you handle it? Did you choke or did you have grace under pressure? Researchers continue to confirm that daily habits of mindset and behavior can create a positive snowball effect through a feedback loop linked to stimulating your vagus nerve.

Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

This is an excellent explaination of how calm looks and is created in the body. The author describes in plain language how the vagus nerve creates calm and provides practices which are not exacty what you would expect, but definelty worthy of reading! 

Quote: As with any mind-body feedback loop, messages also travel "downstream" from your conscious mind through the vagus nerve signaling your organs to create an inner-calm so you can “rest-and-digest” during times of safety or to prepare your body for “fight-or-flight” in dangerous situations.
