“Life changes in many ways after practicing breathwork. There is an emotional release to let go of what you are holding on to. You become more present and not react to stress, allowing you to make better decisions in all aspects of your life.”
Giovanni Bartolomeo guarantees that life changes in many ways after practicing breath work.
Check out my awesome conversation on the transformational power of Breathwork on episode #14 on the Self-Care Goddess Podcast.
On one side there is the emotional release to let go what you are holding on to and when you improve your breathing practice you are able to be present and not react to stress and stimuli in the environment. Breathwork is the most powerful tool you will ever find for releasing stuck or stored emotions in your nervous system or body. It will also create confidence and self-love in a way you didn’t know was possible.
Don’t take my word for it, try it once to find out because the results from your very first time are undeniable. For more information on how proper breathing can affect your overall health or for help in your recovery and guidance on holistic wellness subscribe to my YouTube channel here.
So here’s the big question – How Changing the Way You Breathe Can Change Your Life?
Research suggest that breathing at a rate of four to 10 breaths per minute can improve sleep, chronic anxiety, blood pressure, stress hormone levels, and heart rate variability (indicating greater tolerance for stress) due to the interaction between the breath, the vagus nerve, the heart, and the brain. Deep breathing during exercise helps with form, boosts oxygen delivery to the muscles, and facilitates the removal of waste gases like carbon dioxide but deep breathing can also be beneficial before and even after exercise.
Breathing deeply has a calming effect that can increase focus and decrease performance anxiety before hard workouts or competition. Diaphragmatic breathing also promotes recovery by improving sleep and possibly by reducing exercise-induced cellular damage. In one small study, athletes who practiced belly breathing for one hour after a hard workout saw increased antioxidant activity compared to those who only rested.

When we place our attention on our breath, our focus detracts from areas of pain. We detach from worrisome stories we tell ourselves that we associate with that pain. We become present and not thinking about the future or the past. We learn how to observe the pain as a result of training ourselves to pay attention. This is mindfulness — to see and not react, to notice the qualities. And to do so as an observer. Often, detaching from the emotion of pain reduces the sensation of discomfort. Some studies have proven the effectiveness of mindful breathing on pain relief. In 2016, Zeidan and Vago found mindful breathing to reduce self-reported pain scores. This may help people to rely less on medication. Evidence shows increased time spent practicing mindful breathing results in reduced stress.
