Reap the Benefits of Breathing

Breathing is a simple concept. We all do it all the time, but it is important to recognize the power of our breathe. Stress and anxiety are significant factors in the onset and progression of many illnesses, including many respiratory illnesses. Doing some simple breathing techniques can help alleviate stress and improve health and wellness

Some known benefits of breathing exercises include:

  • Reduced levels of stress
  • Supports the immune system
  • Increases optimism
  • Relieves anxiety
  • Increases anti-oxidant protection
  • Enhances brain function

Also breathing has no side-effects, it can cut healthcare costs and easy to learn and implement. Here is a good breathing exercise to expand your lung capacity:

yoga breathing

  • Exhale completely. Don't let any air stay in your lungs. This allows more new, oxygen-rich air to come in.
  • Expand your lower ribs and drop your diaphragm by keeping your abdominal muscles relaxed. Your abdomen will expand as your diaphragm descends making more room around your lungs, allowing them to fill with air.
  • Widen your arms, holding them farther away from your body, to help open up your chest.
