Breathing related problems

There is nothing new about the importance of breathing. Just a few minutes of oxygen deprivation is enough to destroy the brain’s ability to process incoming information forever. However, it isn´t just important THAT we breathe, but also HOW we breathe.

If the way we breathe is just slightly out of balance, over time it will lead to severe negative consequences, since we breathe so much each and every day.

Our breathing mirrors what is going on in our bodies, our thoughts and feelings, whether we are still or on the move, etc.

By taking control of our breathing we can influence our thoughts and feelings, our internal organs, such as the heart and brain, and our bodily functions such as muscle movements, digestion and the immune system.

Impaired breathing habits

  • Do you sleep poorly?
  • Does physical activity make you breathe heavily?
  • Do you often have a racing mind?
  • Do you suffer from low energy and endurance?
  • Do you have high blood pressure or other heart related issues?
  • Do you have poor sexual stamina?
  • Are you often afraid, anxious, angry or worried?
  • Do you have recurring throat infections?
  • Are you overweight or obese?
  • Do you experience aches and pains?
  • Is your nose often blocked?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, learning to improve your breathing pattern could provide you with significant health benefits.

Poor breathing habits are actually very common. We breathe fast, shallow, hold our breath, take big breaths etc. But most people don’t realize that their own breathing is not as good as it could be.

Take a look at the list below. You may be surprised to see that any of these activities is an indication that your breathing habit is poor:

  • Clearing your throat ever so often (throat-clearing is a form of breathing)
  • Sighs frequently (before we sigh we take a big breath)
  • Holding your breath while you concentrate
  • Talk fast (which also means that you breathe fast)
  • Take big breaths before you are about to say something
  • Keep your mouth open while you exercise and do other types of physical activity
  • Breathe fast and shallow when you are stressed
  • Snoring when you sleep (snoring is a form of breathing)

So, learning to improve your breathing could provide you with significant health benefits. You can read more of my blogs to understand why it is so important, what happens when we breathe poorly learn how to improve.
