Conscious breathing is one way to integrate your mind-body-soul. With regular practice, it will help you cultivate a clear, peaceful mind and a vibrant, healthy body. There is a growing body of scientific research documenting the benefits of practicing conscious deep breathing on a regular basis, including:
- Reduced anxiety and depression
- Lower/stabilized blood pressure
- Increased energy levels
- Muscle relaxation
- Decreased feelings of stress
Helping you experience deeper states of calm and expanded awareness, deeply breathing can have a profound effect on your over all health. It is also a way to detoxify! Here is how.
As you begin, always remember to move through the exercises slowly and mindfully. I invite you to begin right now by taking a deep breath, feeling your lungs fill with air and exhaling in gratitude. Your life begins with an inhalation, and you will take about half a billion breaths before your final exhalation. Most of the time, you probably aren’t aware of your breath, yet it sustains you at the core, reaching every cell in your body.
