Breathing Exercise for a Happier You Helps Relieve Stress and Anxiety
Our body and emotions are triggered when we feel. Breathing exercises help our brain wave frequency to be lowered, our heart rate to be stabilized, and our overall body to come to a balance. This is easily achieved with breathing.
When faced with a challenge that throws you off balance mentally and emotionally and you find your heart beating fast, your thoughts racing, and you feeling out of control, rhythmic, deep, cleansing, slow, breaths can help you return back to a peaceful mind and body.
Much of our internal negative emotions is associated with shallow breathing, where the brain and body do not receive enough oxygen to remain balanced. This exercise has the potential to dissolve stress and anxiety.
Dr. Chopra said, “we are the only beings that can change our biology with our thoughts, emotions, and feelings.
You can do this exercise with eyes closed or open.
Take a deep breath in while counting in your mind from 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 then hold for a second or two and exhale while counting down 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1.
Repeat daily for 1-3 minutes and witness the power of it.
