Who knew that something as simple as breathing could have such a positive impact on your life.
It is simple, effective, easy to do and best of all it’s free!
Deep breathing is a wonderful natural way to help relieve pain and tension. It allows for emotional and physical healing, it helps us to feel calmer, grounded, and relaxed.
How does it work? In a nutshell when we breathe consciously it massages the solar plexus, slows down the adrenals, releases endorphins, increases circulation, and brings oxygen to every single cell of the body. Oxygen heals and re-generates our cells.
What can conscious breathing do for you?
Deep Breathing exercise:
Before you start ensure your body is relaxed, find yourself a comfortable position, standing, sitting or lying down on your back.
Become aware of your body and start to relax the whole body. Softening the face, releasing the jaw, shoulders down and relaxed, arms down by your sides. Hands and fingers loose.
Back supported or at ease, let go of any tension in your buttocks, your leg muscles and your knees. Feet planted on the ground if you are standing or sitting, with feet in line with knees, knees in line with hips and hips in line with shoulders. If you are lying down allow the legs and feet to fall naturally to the sides.
1. Take a deep slow gentle breath in through your nose for the count of about 3 to 5 or more if you can.
2. As you inhale expand your belly, allowing it to fill with air, gently without force
3. Gently blow the breath out through your mouth for the count of about 5 to 6. You want to exhale about 2 to 3 seconds more than your inhale, this is to refresh the reserve of air we keep in our lungs.
As you blow out pull the belly back towards the spine, pushing out the air.
Repeat 5 to 10 times. If you start to feel dizzy stop and come back to your regular breath.
As you inhale feel the oxygen filling your body and as you exhale blow out and release any negativity.
It takes practice and the more you o it the easier it will become the deep the breath and the bigger impact it will have on your well-being.
Do this exercise every day before you go to bed at night and when you wake up in the morning to energise you first thing. It will help you sleep better at night, if you do wake in the middle of the night bring your focus to breath and deep breathe, it will help you fall back to sleep again or at least have a relaxing effect on the body.
At anytime if you feel yourself getting upset, frustrated, impatient, angry or overwhelmed, just stop what you are doing and take a few big deep breaths.
If you feel foggy and jumbled in your mind, if you feel tired and sleepy and need some energy and clarity just breathe deeply.
If you feel in pain, discomfort or you are feeling unwell, take time to breathe and relax the body as much as possible.
You will be amazed at how effective it is.
