The action of inhaling and exhaling has a massive impact on our overall health yet so many of us don’t do it properly. Think about your breath right now. How is it? Is it long or short? Deep or shallow? Fast or slow? Chances are that you might not be breathing in a way that maximises your body’s ability to deliver oxygen to the lungs.
When you practice mindful breathing it helps reduce stress and anxiety, your heart rate will lower and your blood pressure will decrease and you will notice you have an increased stamina for intense exercise, improved sleep, better posture and many other benefits.
