Breath provides energy. Air is more than just oxygen. When we breathe we are providing life giving energy to every cell in the body.
By beginning to breathe more fully you can help your body to heal, increase the clarity of the mind, become more energetic and connect to the present moment.
When you practice unconscious shallow breathing patterns your nervous system goes into flight or fight mode. This makes it difficult to find peace within. Your breath is directly related to the creation of balance in your body and mind.
When you slow down and deepen your breathing patterns, it triggers the relaxation response in your nervous system and helps you to slow your thought patterns.
5-10 minutes of breathing practice everyday will help you to learn to unwind and give you a better appreciation of just how perfect this moment is.
- Take time to be silent and be with your breath everyday
- Deep breathing will help to cleanse your body, increase your health, raise your energy and connect you to the spirit of life.
- When you consciously connect to this life giving energy you naturally feel a deeper sense of appreciation for the preciousness of life, which can increase your levels of happiness.
