Breathing for Life: Deep Breathing Techniques With the Power to Transform Your Life

Food is essential for us to keep going each day. But, it is oxygen that’s absolutely required by our body for each moment. Our breath is an ultimate detoxifier. It initiates healing on such a diverse level. When you understand its importance and practice deep breathing, it will strengthen your immunity; help release the toxins and naturally speed up your metabolic rate. It provides us with a life-sustaining energy and increases the flow of oxygen towards all the organs of our body.

A majority of us do not even use our entire respiratory system to its total capacity. But, all of us are unique having our very own breathing patterns. So, make use of your jaw, mouth, throat, chest, and stomach to relax and breathe deeply. Once you get into this habit is when you’ll start feeling supercharged!

Benefits of Deep Breathing

Boosts Energy Levels

Deep breathing invigorates in you an improved level of energy which creates inner peace and also helps you reach a new state of consciousness. It instigates an absolute healing process in your body to keep it disease-free.

Improves Respiratory System

Deep breathing strengthens your primary breathing muscles and relieves the symptoms of problems like breathlessness, asthma and more. You allow in more oxygen and this releases all your bodily tensions.

Loosens Muscular Tensions

There is nothing that your breath cannot do! It not only makes you feel more confident but also helps alleviate muscular tensions. Deep breathing helps relax our muscles which may otherwise contract upon feeling uncomfortable, irritated or in pain.

Aids Digestion

Deep breathing promotes a better blood circulation which improves the overall digestive process. It helps alleviate the symptoms of constipation along with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and calms your system for optimum digestion.

Relaxes Mental State

When you learn to breathe right is when your mind remains calm. Your breath work helps enhance your ability to concentrate well, feel grounded and achieve clarity in thoughts. It helps prevent the development of a negative thinking pattern and also overcome obsessive behaviors. To ignite the creativity in you, work on your breath and oxygenate your system.

Keeps You Looking Young

A face that’s happy, looks beautiful and feels beautiful too. So, deep breathing slows down the aging process and increases the production of those feel-good hormones. The practice also relieves mood swings and keeps mental tensions at a distance. When you feel content from within, it also shows on the outside!

Improves Cardiovascular System

To regulate the circulation of your heart, practice the art of deep breathing. It tones your diaphragm and also massages it for a better functioning. The risk of heart attacks can be lowered to almost 50% when you adopt a better exercising routine and also get regular with breath training.

Deep breathing is an incredible loop of energy – it travels from the ground you’re standing or sitting on and gets right back to the same point. So, make use of this grounding practice!
