Any movement practice that activates the parasympathetic nervous system, such as tai-chi, yoga, mobility drills, and postural exercises. 

 

Gut Microbiome: 
Gut microbiota, gut microbiome, or gut flora, are the microorganisms, including bacteria, archaea, fungi, and viruses, that live in the digestive tracts of animals.
