Everyday you inhale and exhale 20,000 times. Crazy, right?! When done effectively you will revitalize your body, energy levels, and mind. Believe it or not, focusing on your breathing will build a strong immune system, control blood-sugar, reduce anxiety, massage your health, and increase your mental alertness. Here are a few ways to create the route to a happier, healthier existence:
1) Sit or lie in a comfortable position, keeping your legs and spine straight. Close your eyes. Place one hand on your abs and one hand on your chest. Breathe. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose and fill your lungs. Pause. Exhale slowly through the mouth until your lungs are empty. Repeat 10 times. Notice the inflation and deflation on your entire chest cavity.
