When we are all doing our best to avoid falling to the Covid-19 virus, could we be overlooking something as basic as improving our breathing as a tool to boost our immunity?
After reading this I challenge you to carry out the Diaphragm Breathing exercise on one of the images attached to this post. I will also attach a link to a nice short video that will show you some very easy techniques for better breathing.
The importance of our good breathing should never be overlooked.
Considering we take roughly 25,000 breaths daily, you would think that most of us would be good at it, right? No so. Most people take shallow breaths, not fully using their lung capacity. This process is important to many functions as it releases the oxygen into the bloodstream. There are loads of benefits to breathing well and breathing deeply. The consequences of not breathing well include increased stress and tension in our bodies, limiting oxygen to our brain and our ability to focus and to think clearly, poor sleep habits, to name a few.
This week I introduced a client to a very basic diagram breathing technique, then it occurred to me that I have never included it in any post, so I thought it would be the ideal post at this time. Good breathing habits are always a good idea at any time.
