Breathing is a serious thing for us right? This is how we get our oxygen in our bodies.
Breathing increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to cells throughout your body, and clears your system of carbon dioxide waste. Proper breathing improves your circulation, calms your nervous system, reduces muscular tension and metal fatigue, eases pressure on your heart, massages and stimulates you internal organs, aids in digestion, and reduces stress. We have all heard “Relax, take a deep breath,” its because it actually works!!!!
Here’s an Exercise to try and help you check the level of your breathing!
- Sit up straight, place one hand on your chest and one on your abdomen. As you inhale, notice which hand rises. Your goal is to draw air in past your chest, all the way down into your belly. When you accomplish this, you should feel the hand on your belly rise!
- Whether this comes easy for you or takes practice, the point is to become aware of your own breathing pattern and to retrain your body to breathe more deeply into the diaphragm.
- Track your progress, when you find yourself slipping into shallow breathing patterns, relax and draw in some long, deep breaths.
Proper breathing is one of the greatest things you can do for your health- and it’s free!
