Center for Positive Organizations (CPO) doctoral student affiliate Christina Bradley is a co-author of the Harvard Business Review article “Research: Why Breathing Is So Effective at Reducing Stress.

The article explains how practicing SKY Breath Meditation — a series of breathing and meditation exercises designed to induce calm and resilience — can help to manage stress and anxiety.

“A comprehensive daily breathing protocol such as the SKY Breath Meditation technique will train your nervous system for resilience over the long run,” Bradley and her co-authors (Emma Seppälä and Michael R. Goldstein) write. “These simple techniques can help you sustain greater wellbeing and lower your stress levels — at work and beyond.”

Bradley is a doctoral student in the Management & Organizations department at the Ross School of Business. She studies how emotions affect the way we think, feel, and behave in situations at work.
