Each Breath we take is a miracle in itself. To experience a miracle, we don’t need to walk on water or fly in air. The real miracle is with us- the breath we take. Each moment of our lives, we can feel the wonder of being alive.
How wondrous breath is. BREATH IS LIFE !
Pay attention, be aware of and feel the gratitude for each breath you take. This will clear your mind like a calm river.
Inhalation and exhalation of breath is breathing.
How amazing is the system which governs our breathing mechanism. It almost happens unconsciously without any effort. BUT we all know how important breathing is!
Technically, it is important as our cells constantly need new supply of oxygen to produce energy which is supplied through breathing only. Without oxygen, cell damage and cell death will occur.
This is the one threshold which divides between BEING and NON-BEING, between existing and non-existing.
The way we breathe effects a lot of our conditions-our health, our emotions, our immune systems and state of mind.
EACH EMOTION HAS A CORRESPONDING RHYTHM OF BREATH.
Have you noticed, how your breathing becomes fast and heavy when you are scared or highly stressed.
According to scientific research, our breathing pattern impacts our health in innumerable ways. Some are-
- Shallow breathing leads to lower oxygen levels in the body, which results in increased inflammation, reduced immunity and higher anxiety. It can also impair brain function as brain needs more oxygen compared to other major organs.
- Shortness of breath and heart diseases are linked.
- Poor breathing can lead to sleep problems and high blood pressure.
- 5 breaths per resting minute is a parameter for good health.
So, focus on breathing in a natural, calm way to achieve optimal health.
Stay Healthy ! Stay Happy !
