In the last post, I challenged you to begin to tune into your breath. Hopefully, you’ve started to discover what it feels like to shift your breath from a shallow chest breath and into a deeper, diaphragmatic one. If you’re still having trouble finding this more calming way to breathe, keep it at, revisiting the breathing exercise every day.
In the last post I challenged you to begin breathing through your nose. How did it go? If you have some structural issues or if mouth breathing is your go-to breath, breathing through the nose can be downright difficult.
Does it really matter how you’re delivering oxygen to your body?
If you’re like most people, it’s easy to get amped up or feel butterflies in your stomach. The breath is the magic switch to turn down your stress level.
Have you ever been told to shut your mouth? While it may have seemed brash at the time, it’s actually great advice, especially if you’re feeling stressed, frequently congested, winded during exercise, not sleeping well or have high blood pressure.
