What can your breathing do to really help with your stress and feeling better?

When a child is born, they ask “are they breathing”? When a loved one passes, it is the final breath – breathing stops and that is so hard to understand.

We breathe automatically which is good – our lungs are an involuntary muscle that does the breathing without a thought from us. If we had to remember to take each of our own breaths, we would be terribly unhealthy. And yet, we do not breathe well, easily, systematically and deeply based on our stress or circumstances. In fact, if you take the time to pay attention to how you breathe, you would notice two distinct factors. We typically hyperventilate and/or hold our breath during stressful times. When we continue this type of breathing, our bodies know there is something wrong and we “react” with fight, flight, anger and high emotional distress.

There are many ways we can easily breathe that do serve us. Relaxing and then paying attention to how we breathe is the best way to see what your breathing patterns are…count 1001, 1002 and 1003 with the breath in and then 1001, 1002, and 1003 with the breath out. Do 3 sets of this breathing. You will immediately feel a difference in how the world (less stress and reactions) occurs for you. Try setting an alarm on your device for morning and afternoon for a week to check on your breathing. I guarantee you will be pleased with your breathing changes…less stress and less reactions.
