Life begins when we start breathing and ends with our last breathe. Yet most of us do not know the beneficial effects of breathing well for health and vitality. It is surprising how we give importance to everything be it diet, exercise but something as important as breathing goes unnoticed by many of us as the major contributor to oneâ€™s good health. Most people hold their breath or have constricted breathing unknowingly which impacts the health in a poor way. That is the reason why most of us feel tired, fatigued and lethargic due to lack of oxygen supply to the brain and tissues. Once you focus of proper breathing and consciously do it, you can experience amazing health benefits:
Method of breathing:
The best way to breathe is to hold your breath for few seconds in your lungs to cleanse all the impurities and strengthen the lungs. The breathing should be deep, slow, rhythmic and through the nose and not the mouth.
1. First exhale all the air out of your system to make sure your lungs are empty.
2. Inhale through your nose, filling your abdomen and then the lungs slowly. Count 5.
3. Slowly exhale from your mouth till your lungs completely empty again.
Just as you schedule your business meetings, schedule your breathing sessions for 10 minutes 2 times a day. Make sure you breather in the purest air early morning or anytime of the day. Make this a family activity asking everyone to sit and do it together so that no one missed it out. Take time out for your breathing activity in your busy schedule and you will see a new healthier, energetic and happy self.
