Listen to Max & Amy's conversation about a doctor who has gone viral on TikTok for sharing his “tool for calmness” that he promises will give you “instant” relief during a moment of stress. Dr. Karan Raj regularly posts informative videos on all things health-related for his 4.6-million followers on the platform and this clip about how to calm down quickly and deal with stress is a big hit. And the advice is pretty simple. “Try humming for 10 seconds." He explains that doing this 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. Raj also adds that gargling or singing will do the same.
