Breathing is part of our body’s master blueprint for regulating the body’s rhythms. Yet how often do we take breathing for granted?
Short ragged breath rhythms will both reflect our emotional state and cause us to grow frantic, stressed, and unfocused. Slow, even breathing, on the other hand, will signal that we are calm and relaxed, therefore slowing our heart rate and allowing us to more easily focus our attention.
Due to the record levels of stress and anxiety throughout the developed world, many individuals aren’t living their healthiest lives, even when they work hard at dieting, exercising, and achieving a balance. This stress frequently causes improper breathing. However, it’s also something that we can mastered on an individual basis with slow, steady breathing through the nose.
