Diaphragmatic breathing

All of us are born with the knowledge of how to fully engage the diaphragm to take deep breaths. As we meet stress, however, we get out of the habit and gradually shift to shallower, less efficient ”chest breathing.”

Relearning how to breathe from the diaphragm can have a great impact of your wellbeing.  Diaphragmatic breathing (also called ”abdominal breathing” or ”belly breathing”) encourages full oxygen exchange — that is, the beneficial trade of incoming oxygen for outgoing carbon dioxide. Not surprisingly, this type of breathing slows the heartbeat and can lower or stabilize blood pressure.

Research has proven that deep breathing is one of the most efficient method for stress reduction. This tool affects your immune system, digestion, blood pressure within a couple of minutes.

Breathing through your left nostril enhances the relaxation respons as the nostrils are connected with the brain and nervous system.
