Short, shallow chest breathing results in:
- neck and shoulder tension
- reduced oxygen in the body
- digestive ailments
- increased heart rate
- high blood pressure
By learning to breathe into the belly instead of the chest, we can remedy all of these ailments.
Many of us spend the majority of our lives breathing short and shallow from our chests, instead of breathing deep from our bellies. This can cause a variety of issues, including anxiety and digestive issues. When we breathe from our belly, we calm the nervous system, allowing our minds to become focused and calm.
When we don’t breathe deeply, we stay in a state of” fight or flight” all day long. This is our body’s response to stress. The “fight or flight” state is one of total distress, and is useful if we are being chased by a tiger or running for our lives, but to have this feeling all throughout our day can be extremely detrimental to our health.
Use this practice to train yourself to stay conscious of your breath throughout your day. You will be amazed at the results!!
