Slow Deep Breathing helps to make you feel more relaxed in all situations
Deep slow breathing is a common technique that can help you let go of stress and maintain a quieter state of mind. Research shows that by taking a few moments to stop, relax and breathe deeply each day, can help reduce blood pressure and lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Stress releases a hormone called adrenaline that causes your breathing to quicken and your heart rate and blood pressure to rise. Known as the “fight or flight” response, this reaction can take a toll on your body if sustained over a long period of time. When you recognise that you’re becoming stressed, then deep breathing exercises can help shift your body and mind into a more relaxed state.
Become mindful of practicing a good routine of paying attention to your deep slow breathing for one minute, can greatly benefit your physical and mental well-being.
Re-charging our mobile phones up every day has become for many of us an important routine that we find easy to organise. Wouldn’t it be great if we could get into a similar routine with re-charging our own body, by simply re-booting our own energy with deep slow breathing?
Practice in the morning as you prepare for the day, prior to an important mid-day meeting or event, in the evening as you wind down before bed. Most of us rarely stop during our busy day to think about being mindful of our breathing.
These exercises can reverse your body’s natural reaction to stress helping you manage negative emotions along with physical pain more effectively, boosting and promoting clearer thinking and an abundance of energy.
By the end of each week we at www.mindyourlifetraining.com would like you to be able to look back and say to yourself that each and every day you have practiced deep slow breathing techniques.
