It’s so simple, really. Take as many deep breaths as you can, especially in times of stress. The air we breathe is truly the juice of life. The more you get, the more alive you will feel. Our bodies thrive when they are well oxygenated.
Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress in the body. This is because when you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax. The brain then sends this message to your body. Those things that happen when you are stressed, such as increased heart rate, fast breathing, and high blood pressure, all decrease as you breathe deeply to relax.
Besides thinking about breathing deeply when you are stressed, try to think about it throughout the day. Air is the juice of life.
Though it may feel unnatural to breathe deeply, the practice comes with various benefits. Deep breaths are more efficient: they allow your body to fully exchange incoming oxygen with outgoing carbon dioxide. They have also been shown to slow the heartbeat, lower or stabilize blood pressure and lower stress.
Simply put, taking deep breaths will make your body be more efficient and relaxed. Drink up, and please let me know how it goes.
