Just Breathe…

Did you realize the by just breathing we can improve our general well being????

Now this is not our normal everyday breathing, that I’m talking about here. I talking about BIG, DEEP BREATHS. Those big deep breaths that reach right down to the bottom of our lungs. The deep inhale and deep exhale. This is so easy to do on a daily basis. But, why should we?? What are the benefits???

  • Get more oxygen in – this helps to heal the body
  • Balances blood pressure
  • Helps to quieten and calm the mind
  • Adds oxygen to the brain
  • Balances hormones as it lowers our cortisol levels, which also increases the endorphin rush
  • Helps to increase blood flow to the face and neck, nourishes the skin, giving it colour & vibrancy
  • Helps to reduce inflammation
  • Helps to reduce stress and anxiety

When we take a big deep breath in, our heart rate quickens very slightly. As we then exhale, our heart rate slows, this allows the heart to take in more oxygen and signals the brain to wind down. Repeating the process of these deep breaths, naturally brings your heart rate more in sync with your breath. This causes the brain to release endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals that have a natural calming effect.

So, now that we know all of this, what’s stopping us????? Find the time, relax, chill and B-R-E-A-T-H-E

Have a awesome amazing week, and remember to look for the miracles and surprises….they’re out there waiting to be found.
