~Reality in Consciousness
I knew early on how important oxygen is, so important that I resisted its continual flow. Like some children, practicing to test just how long the breath could be held for, and oh, did it burn like fire, I didn’t like that feeling. Later on in life, without any notice, I would hold my breath out of spite for short periods until it became a problem. Heart palpations followed by sharp pain when I went to lay down vexed was my alarm to take better care of myself.
Studying various styles of meditation and Breath Therapy work had allowed me to choose what best fits me when I feel imbalanced. What will "work" to restore my whole self could be different next week. I am constantly changing as I continue grounding and “tuning-in”. For instance, at this moment, I love the look, feel and the sound of ocean waves where I use this natural ambiance during visualization and writing work. I say all of this just to give you a quick backdrop from where I’m coming from in life as I guide the reader to my preferred resources on the subject below, enjoy.
Shallow or poor breathing can contribute to many disorders. We need to learn to breathe deeply, and from the abdomen rather than from the chest, which produces short, shallow breathing. Learning this technique helps one to breath in more oxygen, which then passes to the lungs and is absorbed into the bloodstream and into our bodies. Oxygen is needed for cellular respiration, cell metabolism, and proper brain function. If you breath too shallowly, the body may not be able to eliminate sufficient carbon dioxide for good health. Proper breathing techniques increases lung capacity, increases energy levels, speeds the healing process of many disorders, and help to relieve anxiety, asthma symptoms, insomnia, and stress (Balch 2010).
To Practice Deep Breathing, do the following:
Here is one often overlooked way to help switch the focus on. Yoga-type Breath-work. Shallow, short Breathing is one of the main signs of anxiety. However, by consciously Breathing deeply, you can calm your body and mind. Try this helpful technique:
